Independent living facilities are specifically designed for residents who are still able to care for themselves and want the freedom to maintain this independence but want to enjoy the benefits of socialization, recreational activities and services. The services range depending on the facility. Many independent senior apartments only offer an apartment in an age restricted community with minimal activities. Some full service Retirement Communities offer a full range of services from meals, transportation, full schedule of activities, housekeeping and much more.
