Sunrise of Henderson is wonderful. They take great care of my aunt, communicate with me often, are always welcoming when I visit, and they make the residence feel like a home. Their dining room is one of our favorite restaurants! Couldn't have imagined how happy my aunt is.. and she is always involved in some type of activity!
Gramercy Parc is truly A Place for Mom. The staff is very kind and friendly. They make the families members feel secure that their family member is important. The tenants are friendly and welcoming. My mother and our family is very satisfied.
I chose Destinations Pebble because of the cost, they took me with just having social security income. I am in a 1 bedroom and it is fine for what I need. Sometimes the rooms are not thoroughly cleaned as I would like but overall it is a good facility and I would recommend to others looking.

Seniors in Henderson sometimes combine personal income sources, like savings accounts and retirement pensions, to cover their monthly independent living costs. Since independent living communities don’t typically provide senior care services, these communities aren’t covered by long-term care insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. However, we provide information on those programs in this section, since they can be used to pay for medically necessary in-home health care services if ever needed.
In the following sections, you’ll find information on private pay methods, veterans benefits, and both Medicaid and Medicare resources for seniors in Henderson.
Seniors typically pool their personal income sources — like savings accounts, pensions, Social Security benefits, and investment returns — to cover independent living costs. It’s important to note that long-term care insurance won’t cover independent living community costs. That’s because these communities are not care facilities, meaning they don’t provide direct care services to their residents.
Many residents of our partner communities utilize the following methods to pay for their ideal independent senior living community:
Stand-alone independent living communities in Nevada don’t need to be licensed or inspected. However, a license is required if an independent living community shares facilities with an assisted living senior care community. To learn more about care community regulations that apply to assisted living facilities, check out the regulations section of our Henderson assisted living page.
Henderson stand-alone independent living communities typically have a minimum age requirement of 55 years. Residents are sometimes required to also be considered independent upon admission. Additionally, all rental complexes are required to follow general housing standards under the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Under these laws, seniors with disabilities have a right to accessibility standards in rental communities like independent living facilities. Read on for some examples of some of those accessibility standards.
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), owners of all rental complexes must consent to reasonable accommodations and modifications for their residents with disabilities. Landlords are required to pay for accommodations and certain structural modifications of common areas, while the senior resident should pay for certain structural modifications to their individual unit. Below are some common examples of modifications and accommodations that could fall under the ADA act.
The city of Henderson urges its residents to stay up to date with vaccinations and testing. Everyone over the age of five in Nevada can get vaccinated to protect themselves against the virus. You’ll find several vaccination sites in Southern Nevada and several Henderson pharmacies that offer vaccine appointments and drive-through COVID-19 testing. Stay updated with the local guidelines by visiting the City of Henderson’s website.
Stand-alone independent living communities in Henderson may have their own COVID-19 guidelines apart from the city’s guidelines. That said, you should contact a prospective community to learn more about their on-site rules. To learn more about the COVID-19 guidelines for assisted living wings of independent living communities, read the Regulations section of the Henderson assisted living page.

Just outside the bustling Las Vegas Strip, Henderson independent living communities offer scenic suburban living and curated, senior-specific activities for folks aged 55 and up. Enjoy the benefits of a private apartment in either a stand-alone independent living community or a multilevel senior care community. No matter your choice, you’re sure to enjoy an abundance of amenities and perks that come with a retirement community in Henderson.
About 40% of Henderson independent living communities in A Place for Mom’s network are connected to either assisted living services, memory care services, or both. Assisted living services include personal care and assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing. Memory care services are designed to help seniors experiencing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.
One benefit of living in a combined independent living and senior care community is that seniors can age in place, without worrying over moving away when care needs change. These multilevel communities also make it possible for couples with different care needs to live in the same community. Residents have access to senior care services from the convenience of their living community.
Some of our in-network communities only offer independent living services, though they may offer access to third-party caregiver services. Both types of communities provide the wealth of resort-style amenities, services, and events common to independent living communities.
Henderson independent living communities offer a range of floor plans, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom layouts. The apartments are typically private, allowing you to experience the positivity that comes with downsizing while still enjoying a home of your own. Once you’ve moved in, you’ll embark on an engaging and maintenance-free lifestyle, with a variety of service options that may include the following:
When you’re not in the middle of enjoying the provided amenities, activities, and outings, you can spend quality time with your beloved feline or canine companion. In fact, all of the independent living communities in A Place for Mom’s network are pet-friendly, so your pet family member is welcome on this journey alongside you. Many communities also offer pet-friendly accommodations to make the transition easier on everyone, from dog parks to spacious courtyards and pet care services.

The RTC even offers exclusive transportation services for seniors, like door-to-door scheduled rides and dedicated neighborhood routes.
