What is Independent Senior Living?
Independent living is simply any housing arrangement designed exclusively for older adults, generally those aged 55 and over. Since independent living facilities are aimed at older adults who need little or no assistance with activities of daily living, most do not offer medical care or nursing staff.
How Does Independent Senior Living Work?
Independent living preserves a senior’s independence while placing them in a community of like-minded people. It balances the many competing needs of today’s seniors by offering: A ready-made community that doesn’t intrude on privacy. Help when a senior needs it, without compromising independence.
Independent living communities are designed for active adults. Their residents are ready to trade in the years of often overwhelming yet fulfilling responsibilities that may have included raising children and having a meaningful career. Although they wouldn’t have had it any other way, now they’re ready to experience time that they can truly call their own.
What is the Difference Between Independent Senior Living and Assisted Living?
Independent living communities primarily focus on serving the social needs of residents, as many are able to live independently without much support. Assisted living communities support those who need assistance with activities of daily living, while allowing residents to live as independently as possible.
Does Medicare Pay for Independent Living?
Medicare does not cover any cost of independent living. It will pay for most medical costs incurred while the senior is in independent living, but will pay nothing toward custodial care (personal care) or the room and board cost of independent living.
What Are the Benefits of Independent Senior Living?
Simplicity and freedom – They don’t have to deal with the expense and hassles of taking care of the house or yard anymore. If they don’t want to cook, they don’t have to – or do dishes. They have more time to do the things they love and to pursue new interests.
Staying active – A comment you’ll hear a lot is, “There’s so much to do here you can’t fit it all on your calendar.” It’s not uncommon for residents to realize just how little they were actually doing when they still lived in their house. With so many opportunities right at their fingertips, they can be as busy as they want.
Social connections – The effects of social isolation can be devastating to your physical and mental well-being. As an independent living resident, social opportunities are built into daily life, from informal get-togethers with friends to resident clubs, outings and parties.
Access to care – As healthy as you may be now, you just don’t know if or when your health (or the health of your loved one) will change. Making the choice to move to independent living has been a blessing to many residents who had an unexpected health problem. They didn’t have to worry about where to find the care they needed, and didn’t have to move out to get it.
