An Independent Living community provides healthy, active seniors with the possibility of continuing to live independently with minimal assistance but in a community with others that share similar interests. In most retirement communities, outings and activities are planned by the staff or can be found on the premises like golf, tennis and swimming.
Some of the key amenities that an Independent Retirement Community offers are:
On-site and off-premise activities and trips
Wellness and exercise programs
Guest quarters/rooms for visiting family members
Meal plan option (as often or as little as you want)
Which Independent Living Option is Right for You?
Assisted Living Locators Atlanta provides a free Assessment Tool to help better determine your best independent living options.
When providing information about your needs, start by answering these simple questions:
How self-sufficient are you in handling all of your activities of daily living (ADL)?
If you are completely self-sufficient and you simply want assistance with meals, housekeeping, laundry and you enjoy the company of other seniors, then Independent Living is probably an excellent option for you or your loved one.
What type of retirement community are you looking for?
Consider location, size and amenities of the community you would like to live in. Being clear about what you want will save a lot of time and stress.
What activities fit into your lifestyle?
Sports, running, walking, swimming and a range of social activities are all available in independent living communities. By listing the activities that are most important to you, we can match them with the perfect independent living community.
What is your financial situation?
As many seniors are living on fixed and retirement incomes, it is also important to consider your financial situation when choosing a home. The costs of Independent Living Communities vary and it is important to understand what is and is not covered in the monthly rent and if there are any additional fees to join the community.
Are there additional support services available if needed?
Also consider what additional support services are available in the community you may choose that are specific to your needs. Some facilities offer the full continuum of care from Retirement to Assisted Living whereas others also provide Rehabilitation and Hospice.
