Senior Independent Living Services
Should You Choose an Independent Living Community?
Independent living communities can offer the perfect solution for those who do not necessarily need the in-depth, one-on-one support of an assisted living community, but who want or need minor help with various day-to-day activities. These types of communities are best for active seniors who wish to retain their independence while also connecting with other retired, active individuals and receiving minor assistance with tasks like laundry, running errands, and general home upkeep.

Our local, community-based advisors are happy to answer your questions, address your concerns, and help you select the right community for your lifestyle preferences.

Types of Independent Living Communities
There are a number of different types of independent living communities to choose from in any given region in the United States. These different types of communities range in cost, as well as in the types of amenities offered.
Some of the most common types of senior independent living communities include:
- Subsidized Senior Housing: These communities are subsidized by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for low-income individuals. Depending on your area, these facilities may have long wait lists, making it wise to plan far in advance should you choose this option.
- Senior Apartments: This type of independent living community offers apartment complexes that are restricted by age to include only seniors, usually those at least 55 years or older. In many cases, the cost of rent includes various recreation programs, transportation services, and other amenities.
- Retirement Communities: Like senior apartments, retirement communities typically consist of individual housing units restricted by age (usually 55+). Units can range from single-family homes to townhouses, mobile homes, duplexes, or condominiums. Monthly fees typically include a number of amenities and services for residents.
- Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs): Often, this option offers housing packages that allow individuals access to numerous senior housing options, including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing facilities, and more. This option is ideal for those who may need to adjust their living situation over time, as it is easy to transfer to another housing type.
Whatever your unique situation, our advisors are happy to help you take a look at your various options and select the perfect independent living community for your specific needs. We take into account your budget, goals, and various other factors in order to help you find the right solution.
