Independent living

Senior apartments and communities are great for individuals who can manage most of their own needs and are able to request help as needed. Independent Living communities provide meals, transportation, a wide range of activities for seniors and full size apartments for living. Services will vary as will cost. Apartments can start under $1000/month and run as high as $4000 or more for large 2 bedroom apartments or villas, with full service dining, utilities, and amenities like a pool, store, physical therapy and workout room. Most can offer limited subcontracted assistance with personal care or medication management but do not have healthcare staff on site 24/7.
