Benefits of an Independent Living Community

April 30, 2018

Independent living communities are a great option for seniors post retirement. These communities are designed for very healthy and active seniors who can take care of their day to day tasks without needing assistance or constant monitoring. Staying in independent living facility seniors can make their own schedule and participate in community events as they please.

Independent living community benefits include:

  • Residents are not responsible for maintenance including indoor, outdoor and common areas. Seniors can spend time doing more enjoyable activities than fixing problems around their home.
  • Communities tend to have planned activities and events that allow residents to socialize with others.
  • Many facilities provide an all-inclusive rent, with internet, tv, phone, heat, electric and water all included. This saves residents the worry of having to watch or pay the bills.
  • A lot of independent living facilities offer great amenities like fitness centers, wellness programs, spas, pools and gyms. Having all of these facilities available in one place makes it easier to enjoy them.
  • While communities don’t offer care, if a resident needs emergency assistance, it is always close by. Independent living communities give family the peace of mind that their loved one is safer than at home by themselves.
