Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having housekeeping handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect fit.

Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle.
