Independent living communities are also known as retirement communities, retirement homes or senior housing. For today’s baby boomers and seniors, retirement living communities offer a broad range of intellectual, physical and social activities to enhance the “golden years”.
Independent living also means that you may be able to choose a community that is unlicensed, meaning the state in which this community resides, doesn’t monitor the community for any of the protections or laws that are in place in many states that protect seniors in senior living communities.
Independent living typically attracts younger seniors or seniors who do not wish to have medical assistance provided within the community in which they reside.
Independent living can be the most affordable option for seniors who are very healthy, active, mobile and want a “resort-like” experience to enjoy the beginning of their golden years.
