Independent Living FAQs

What is independent living?

Independent living is a type of residential community designed exclusively for older adults, typically ages 55 and older. These communities are designed to enhance retired life for active older adults, eliminating the stressors of homeownership. Independent living offers the comforts of home with additional access to social activities, wellness activities, dining, transportation and more.

What is the difference between assisted living and independent living?

Independent living communities are designed for active and independent older adults that do not need any medical care or assistance. Assisted living communities are designed for mostly independent adults who may need some help with activities of daily living, such as bathing or dressing. Both types of communities offer amenities and services designed to enhance senior living.

Why transition to independent senior living?

Independent senior living gives adults the freedom to design the retirement they’ve always dreamed of. Many retirees transition to independent senior living when they are ready to trade in the burdens of home maintenance, housekeeping, or transportation for more time and flexibility to explore their passions. Many also transition to independent senior living to access a social network as well as the on-site services and amenities that independent living typically offers.

What are the requirements for independent living?

While the eligibility requirements differ for each independent senior living community, most require adults to be over the age of 55.
