My loved one is very happy there and has settled in really well. Everyone is super helpful and welcoming. They made my loved one feel at home. They gave them a very extensive tour to make sure they knew where everything was and explained what times meals and activities took place. The only improvement I can see they could make is with the laundry. My loved one said, their missing some clothing and towels.
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.

According to A Place for Mom’s 2022-2023 proprietary data, the average price seniors paid for Las Vegas independent living was $3,592 per month for a one-bedroom floor plan and $3,013 per month for a studio floor plan. These monthly costs reflect room and board, admission fees, homeowners association (or HOA) fees, and any add-ons like pet rent and elective amenities.
Independent living costs typically vary based on location, floor plan, and services. If your independent living community is part of a larger assisted living or life plan community, entrance fees may apply. Stand-alone independent living communities don’t typically have entrance fees, but they also don’t provide additional senior care services.
The list below includes typical services, amenities, add-on services, and fees associated with Las Vegas independent living:
The numbers in the chart below reflect baseline costs for Las Vegas independent living. Baseline costs reflect room and board, but they don’t include any fees or care costs. These figures are helpful to do an area comparison of baseline costs for independent living communities.

You can cover your monthly independent living costs in a number of ways, including personal finances such as savings accounts and Social Security benefits. Keep in mind that because independent living communities don’t provide senior care services, there are some state and federal programs that won’t cover independent living costs. Instead, programs like Medicaid and Medicare may cover in-home care services that are medically necessary and provided in your residence.
In this section, you can browse private pay methods, Veterans Affairs benefits, housing assistance options, and both Medicaid and Medicare benefits for local seniors.
You can use your personal assets to cover the costs of independent living in Las Vegas. Your savings, pensions, investment returns, Social Security benefits, and any of the following may be used:
Stand-alone independent living communities in Nevada don’t need to be licensed or inspected. However, if an independent living community is a part of a larger facility that offers other senior care services, a license is required. Nevada’s long-term senior care facilities that provide assisted living and other services are known as Residential Care Facilities for Groups. These facilities are licensed by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (or DHHS) Bureau of Health Care Quality and Compliance (or HCQC).
Nevada’s Residential Care Facilities for Groups must follow the requirements below:
Las Vegas stand-alone independent living communities are typically reserved for adults who are at least 55 years old. Under the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), seniors with disabilities have a right to the following accessibility standards in independent living:
The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (or DHHS) inspects each facility before the license is approved. Residential Facilities for Groups may also be inspected after a complaint has been filed. Inspection reports are available to the public in Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Provider Search Form. To navigate this search form, select “Health Facilities” under the Business Unit search criteria, select “Residential Facility for Groups” under the Credential Type criteria, then enter the name and the address of the facility you would like to learn about.

You’ll find a variety of independent senior living options in Las Vegas, from different styles of homes to a variety of on-site care offerings. Las Vegas independent living is also known for resort-style amenities and activities that enable seniors to truly enjoy their new maintenance-free lifestyle.
You can choose between our seven partner independent living-only communities, sometimes called stand-alone communities, and our 13 partner communities that offer senior care services. Stand-alone independent living facilities are exclusively for independent, active seniors over the age of 55. These communities offer senior-specific amenities and social activities, but residents are free to come and go as they please.
In the event that your care needs change in the future, it may be helpful to choose a combined community. Some Las Vegas independent living communities provide different combinations of assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care. These on-site services give you the freedom to choose between communities that simply help with activities of daily living and other communities that provide a broader range of services. Choosing an independent living facility like this will keep you connected to senior care services without ever having to move.
You’ll find the comforts of home in the range of Las Vegas independent living apartments and villas. Many communities offer a mixture of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments that come with either kitchenettes or full kitchens. For visitor- and couple-friendly options, you can also find two-bedroom independent living apartments that have up to two bathrooms. Some options also have private patios and balconies in addition to their landscaped grounds.
Independent living villas are another option in Las Vegas. Villas may include two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a den. These are great options for seniors who want to retire in a homelike environment without dealing with the hassle of homeownership.
Las Vegas independent living communities strive to help seniors maintain a carefree yet engaging and active lifestyle. Break a sweat in the fitness center, work on your latest piece in the art studio, or swim a few laps in the pool. After, grab a snack at the poolside bistro or lounge in the whirlpool spa.
You can also enjoy gourmet, restaurant-style dining and release the responsibilities of cooking your own meals. Get a new hairstyle or manicure from the comfort of your new home in the on-site beauty salon and barber shop. Even your beloved pet can enjoy the new lifestyle, as all of A Place for Mom’s partner independent living communities in Las Vegas are pet-friendly.
Popular activities at Las Vegas independent living include private performances from Las Vegas entertainers, happy hours, parties, on-site fitness classes, outings to casinos, and continuing education opportunities. When you’re not exploring the city with friends and family, consider joining one of the community’s resident-run interest clubs.
