What is Independent Living?
Independent Living in a retirement community means just that. You live with another person, or alone, in your choice of an on-campus home, cottage or apartment. Independent Living residents must be able to live safely without around-the-clock care.
The main benefits of choosing an Independent Living senior community are widely considered to be:
- Giving up the costs and physical burdens of homeownership
- Enjoying a maintenance-free residence designed for your needs
- Having the freedom to travel without worrying about your residence
- Meeting new people with similar backgrounds and interests
- Having access to higher levels of health care, should you ever need it
Why consider Independent Living today?
One of the best reasons to consider a move to an Independent Living community is that housing prices are at an all-time high in the United States, and increased assets from the sale of one’s primary residence can go a long way toward helping to pay for Independent Living in a senior living community.
What does Independent Living cost?
The cost of joining an Independent Living community depends upon several factors, including:
- Geographic location of the community
- Apartment or home floor plan
- Amenities and service fees
- Size and scope of the senior care community
- Living or alone or with another person

What is the difference between Independent Living and Assisted Living?
Seniors who choose to live in Independent Living communities seek to downsize to reduce the monthly costs of homeownership and make daily living easier and more enjoyable.
Independent Living communities do not provide care services or regular health care.
Assisted Living describes a type of community where residents require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs).
ADLs are generally considered to be:
- Eating/meal prep
- Safe restroom use
- Walking (with or without assistance), and safe and functional transferring
The primary goal of Assisted Living communities is to help residents maintain as much independence as possible while enjoying a stimulating and social lifestyle.
