Independent senior living communities offer seniors ages 55+ the opportunity to be part of a lifestyle filled with comfort, convenience, and luxury. This community gives their residents the balance of privacy with the opportunity to be part of a community of active seniors who live in a similar setting.
Most independent senior living communities can offer housing that ranges from apartments, cottages, condominiums, or single-family homes.
Why Choose an Independent Living Community?
1. Maintenance-free Living
Imagine how much time you could add to your day by removing your daily chores or responsibilities associated with owning a home. The newfound freedom that independent living provides helps residents enjoy the important things in life, find new hobbies, and live their life to the fullest!
2. Amenities and Services
Many seniors choose independent living facilities that offer a wide range of amenities and services. It is important to choose a community that offers services and amenities available that are important to you. Stay true to yourself and you’re sure to find the perfect community!

- Tennis Courts
- Golf Courses

- Pet-Friendly Community

3. Proper Nutrition
When people age, nutrition, including the quality of their food and their ability to consume the right nutrients, becomes one of their biggest concerns. Independent living communities typically offer the option to add meal services to your plan. Most independent care communities employ professional chefs and dietitians who specialize in senior nutrition to create meal plans for each resident. Meal plans can be customized to your dietary preferences and help you improve health issues such as fatigue, high cholesterol, or weight management. This means your meal will be as delicious as it is nutritious!
Meals can be enjoyed in social dining areas or taken to-go!
4. Social Interactions
Social interaction has been proven to boost your immune system, improve mental sharpness, lower your risk of dementia, improve mental health, and give you a sense of belonging. These benefits help seniors stay more active and live longer and happier lives.
However, as we age, it can be difficult to make new friends. It only makes sense that living in a community surrounded by like-minded people encourages new friendships. And without the additional chores and responsibilities, it’s easy to connect!
Independent Living vs Assisted Living
It is important to remember that independent living is not the same thing as assisted living. Even though assisted living residents may be able to live independently, they typically require some assistance with daily tasks such as cooking, bathing, or arranging transportation. Individuals living in independent living communities do not require any assistance to perform these tasks.
