What is Independant Living?
Independent living communities are age-restricted communities designed specifically to meet the needs of their residents. From senior-friendly events to building design, everything revolves around providing a better place for seniors to live. And with someone always taking care of the garden, the lawn, laundry and cleaning around the house, you can focus more on enjoying the things you love the most!
In many instances, Independent living may offer just the right amount of support when you don’t need help with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) but may benefit from convenient services, senior-friendly surroundings, and increased social opportunities. In Greater Cincinnati, most independent communities are part of larger communities that include assisted living and memory care.
More and more seniors around the country are choosing to live in independent living facilities. Whether they’re just tired of all the home upkeep or want to find more companionship, these communities provide a great option. They can also be a very good choice for those wanting to travel without worrying about maintaining their home year-round.
What does Independant Living include?
Depending on the community, independent living can include:
- Dining / meal preparation (1 meal per day)
- Social & recreational activities
- Varying amenities
At Assisted Living Locators, we have a bias towards the independent/assisted living model of senior living community instead of independent-only buildings. As seniors age, so do their needs. While someone may enter a residence without requiring any assistance, having a continuum of care available is helpful.
