What is Independent Living?
Independent living facilities are designed for seniors (typically aged 60+) who are still healthy, active, and able to go about their daily routine without constant monitoring or assistance. With an emphasis on uninterrupted freedom and self-sufficiency, independent living complexes allow residents to enjoy the benefits of their many amenities, as well as a thriving community that typically features plenty of events and activities ready to be enjoyed.
Benefits of independent living include:
Elimination of household chores, including property upkeep and repairs
Forget about the hassle of shoveling, lawn care, and having to fix various elements of your home. Removing these chores allow you to focus on activities that are personally rewarding as well as developing new hobbies to enjoy.
A Healthy Community, Right At Your Doorstep
Socialization plays an important role in maintaining our health and vitality, regardless of our age. Being part of a built in community that gives you ample opportunity to participate can be extremely beneficial for residents.
Safety and Autonomy
Independent living facilities offer tenants the safety of a carefully maintained complex, without interfering with your freedom and sense of autonomy.
