What is an Independent Living Community?
Independent living is about LIFESTYLE. Independent living/retirement communities are for adults who want to enjoy the benefits of an active, independent lifestyle, in a community where their neighbors are of the same age range and have similar interest. Independent living communities provide the best of both worlds: private living along with optional communal activities and services. Independent living communities remove the responsibility of home maintenance yet provide a range of social, educational and leisure activities.
