Independent Living for Seniors
Connecting Families, Empowering Seniors
Independent living is a challenge many aging adults face. As children, we find ourselves sometimes adopting the role our parents once did. We worry about whether our moms and dads are eating enough, taking their medication, getting adequate sleep, and caring for themselves properly.
As seniors get older, they may not be able to perform everything as easily as they used to, but they are still fully capable of living well with slight modifications. In these situations, independent living services can help seniors thrive in their golden years.
What Is Independent Living?
Independent living communities give seniors access to help whenever they need it while still granting them total freedom in their lives. Unlike assisted living, which provides greater assistance with daily tasks, independent living facilities are more focused on creating an environment that lets seniors go on living their lives.
In an independent living community, seniors live in their own apartments, or they might have roommates. They get to benefit from community services like access to medical care, transportation services, dining, and entertainment options.
Independent living is generally not for seniors who need help with daily living activities, such as bathing, toileting, meal prep, and cleaning. For these seniors, we suggest an assisted living facility or nursing home.
The Benefits of Independent Living Communities
- Ability to live independently with assistance as needed
- Enjoy a peaceful, relaxing neighborhood with their peers
- Access amenities and activities that help them stay active
- No burden of home maintenance
- Services that make senior living easier, like counseling and transportation
Seniors benefit from greater access to recreational activities, which can help them form new connections in older adulthood. For seniors who enjoy living alone but may struggle with loneliness, independent living communities provide the perfect solution.
