The Basics of Independent Living
Independent living is usually an apartment building with services for seniors. The idea is to allow seniors to maintain their independence.
Some meals, weekly housekeeping, and utilities usually are included in the rent. In addition, most independent living communities offer a full array of daily social, recreational and educational events designed to enrich life both in and out of the building for no additional charge.
Amenities and services are usually very important when searching for independent senior living. Seniors are looking for a worry-free lifestyle and that is what independent living is designed to achieve.
There usually are some safeguards built into the apartments such as pull cords (to reach a nurse or attendant call station) and accessible bathrooms.
If one moves into an independent living apartment and more care is needed, usually the property has a partnership with a company that can provide care a la carte such as help with escorts and medication reminders.
Independent living is not licensed by any federal or state agencies.
