Independent living facilities are designed for seniors who seek a community for daily activities and socialization. Independent living can best be described as communal living for seniors who only need minor assistance with the activities of daily living with the provision of such supportive services as meals, transportation, scheduled recreational activities and a variety of other services.
Traditionally, independent living facilities have been patterned after apartments and condominiums. However, many of these communities are evolving to accommodate the different demands of our aging population. Seniors desire and require more services – both home-based and community-based.
Trending in Independent Living
One trend the industry is experiencing is the rise of independent living unit apartment developments in urban areas. These areas are attractive to seniors wanting to live “where the action is” and where there are multiple amenities readily accessible. Additionally, seniors are increasingly reluctant to live in an age-segregated community. They want to mix with all ages of the community.
Personalized care is also increasingly important for seniors looking at independent living options. Today’s seniors want real choices and experiences when it comes to food and meal times, living arrangement style (apartment vs. condo vs. shared quarters), personal connections with staff, and a sense of community belonging.
