Independent living, often referred to as retirement living, is the term applied to a senior lifestyle that maintains an active nature and level of independence.
Where many seniors could use the valuable extra assistance that comes with home care or assisted living, others don't require that level of care and seek a more active lifestyle and community. Independent living and retirement communities help seniors achieve this, by providing an environment where retired adults can live among their peers while taking advantage of the many amenities and activities these communities provide.
Picking the right retirement community for you is a big choice. Search the independent living communities close to where you want to live, and read reviews to see what other seniors and their families have to say about their experiences.
