What is independent living?

Independent living is a style of living designed for adults 55+, often ranging from
apartment-style living to single-family homes. The communities and homes are designed to
make everyday life more convenient and enjoyable and allow residents to maintain their
independence for as long as possible.

Amenities, activities, and services are common in most communities. For example, lawn
maintenance and housekeeping services may be available. Clubhouses and meeting spaces are
often included to help residents connect and build community. Activities are often directed by
neighborhood staff, taking into account residents’ interests and hobbies. Independent living
communities are also often equipped with amenities like swimming pools, tennis courts,
restaurant-style dining, and even salon services.
