You’re still active and independent with complete autonomy over your health care, but full convenience is becoming paramount. You value complete freedom from the burden of upkeep and repair.
Many Independent Living Communities feature recreational opportunities on par with Active Adult Communities but add organized social opportunities. Additional features often include full laundry, housekeeping and dining services: things you could do for yourself but prefer not to. Interior amenities such as laundry and kitchen are pared down and space is optimized more for couple convenience than family accommodation. Living units are exclusively rented by residents, not owned. As such, community managers are entirely responsible for maintenance and repair.
