What is Independent Living?  

In many ways, life at an independent living community is very similar to life at your current home, but with several key benefits. Perhaps most notably is the concept of maintenance-free living. Under this concept, you’ll never need to worry about things like mowing the lawn, shoveling snow or clearing out your gutters. Bothersome chores like these, and many more, are all covered by your monthly rent. The benefits of maintenance-free living at a senior living community don’t stop here. You can also say “goodbye” to costly home repairs like replacing a roof, furnace or siding. At the end of the day, it all adds up to more time to focus on the people, places and things you love.

Advantages of Independent Living

  • Maintenance-free living
  • Housekeeping included
  • On-site dining options
  • Social activities & events
  • Transportation
  • Volunteer opportunities

What is Assisted Living?

Life at an assisted living community offers many of the same advantages as independent living, but with an extra level of support for activities of daily living (ADLs). You’ll still get to enjoy everything that comes along with a maintenance-free lifestyle, and you can also take advantage of in-home assistance with things like medication management, bathing and dressing or managing a chronic health condition. It’s all included with your monthly rent, so if you or your loved one could benefit from the added level of care assisted living offers, this might be the best choice for you.

Advantages of Assisted Living

  • Help with dressing, bathing, grooming & other ADLs
  • Chronic health condition management
  • Medication management
  • Maintenance-free living
  • Housekeeping included
  • On-site dining options
  • Social activities & events
  • Transportation
  • Volunteer opportunities
