Answering Our Most Asked Questions about Moving into Independent Living for Seniors

There’s a lot of questions about independent living for seniors today, especially with the growing elderly population in the country.

Whether it’s a loved one trying to research nursing care options or a family who want to move a loved one to independent living, we answer some of your most asked questions about independent living for seniors:

What is independent living for seniors?

When it comes to choosing housing options for seniors, assisted living, nursing homes, and memory care are the more popular choices. But independent living for seniors is also a smart choice if you or a loved one wishes to live independently while having access to conveniences like dining, housekeeping, and transportation.

If you can do your activities of daily living and you just want to live somewhere safe and convenient, this would be the perfect choice for you.

How do I choose the right community?

Your choice for an independent living community will depend on your needs, preferences, and budget. Before you can decide on the right community, you need to evaluate your needs first. You should also think about the lifestyle that you’d want once you’re in independent living.

Do you want to be in an apartment rental, or do you prefer to be in a typical home setting? Would you want a community with many sports and fitness activities? Will you need a place that will serve you scheduled meals? Make a list of your needs and wants to help you find the right community to choose.
