Independent Senior Living
Older adults who choose an independent living community often do so for reasons of convenience and socialization. Is it right for you? Ask yourself these questions:
Are you active and independent?
Can you safely manage your personal care needs?
Are you able to independently manage your medications?
Do you intend, or are you able, to maintain an active lifestyle?
If you prefer not to worry about household maintenance and repairs, living independently will provide more time for life enrichment activities, travel, and family. In this case, independent living communities may be a good choice for you or your parents.
