Independent Senior living may also be called "Retirement Communities," "Congregate Living" or "Senior Apartments." This type of senior housing is designed for independent seniors that want the convenience of community living with recreational, educational and social activities. Like 55+ communities, these communities are low maintenance. Seniors spend less time performing home maintenance and yard work. Homes are usually rented at a market rate, but some subsidized senior apartments are affordable for seniors with low incomes. Healthcare services are not provided, but some communities will allow residents to receive assistance from a home-care agency.
Independent Living May Be A Good Housing Option If:
- You don't want the burden of managing a home
- You want to grow your social network of peers
- You want to join a community with amenities like nutritious meals
- You don't require daily assistance with medical or personal care
