Virginia Independent Living Communities

independent-livingIndependent Living is really what it sounds like. This type of community is generally an appropriate choice only for those who are relatively healthy and still maintain their independence and autonomy in day-to-day life. There are, however, many advantages for seniors who choose to live in an Independent Living community.

As many people age, they find the responsibilities of home ownership, upkeep and maintenance burdensome. Independent Living communities alleviate those burdens by offering maintenance-free living, which sometimes even includes housekeeping and laundry services. Many of these communities are also outfitted with emergency call buttons in each residence for added security and peace of mind. There can also be social benefits, as some communities will have organized activities, groups and clubs, gathering spaces, a dining room and a range of amenities.

Choice Connections can help you determine what type of care will best meet your loved one’s needs, whether it is a move to a community or remaining at home with care brought in.
