Independent Senior Living

The ideal solution to live an independent life while aging.

Who is Independent Senior Living for?

Independent Senior Living is for adults who don't need the one-on-one support of an assisted living community but still require some help with daily activities. Independent senior living communities are designed for seniors who need minimal to no assistance.
The independent senior living communities are ideal for active seniors who value their independence and relationships with other retirees. Here, seniors can benefit from minor assistance with daily activities such as running errands, laundry, and general home upkeep. Independent senior living facilities can be housing co-ops or apartment-style and have an entrance fee or a detailed rental arrangement. Call us at Katy's Angel Care for more information on Independent Senior Living.

FAQs for Independent Senior Living

Q: How is Independent Senior Living different from Assisted Living?

A: Independent Senior Living and Assisted Living are different on many levels. Assisted Living is perfect for people who require help with daily activities in their homes. Even if these people could still live independently at an assisted living facility, they need assistance with various tasks. The support services go from housekeeping to meal cooking, cleaning, and maintenance of the home. Seniors in Assisted Living may need help with medications and bathing as well. Some of them may require memory care.

People who don't require help with their daily activities will find comfort in independent senior living communities. Suppose your senior can still cook meals for himself, use the restroom on his own and get around without support. In that case, the independent senior living facility would be the most appropriate choice. More often than not, independent senior living communities also have amenities with medical care, residential dining services, and entertainment. Many independent senior living communities will help the residents with housekeeping or meals if need be.

At Katy’s Senior Placement Services, we can help you find the right type of senior community for your needs and budget.

How do you know if independent senior living is appropriate for your senior

How do you know if independent senior living is appropriate for you/your senior?

We know it's not easy to tell if you or your senior should go to an independent senior living facility. Our set of questions and answers will help you make a decision.

How easy is it for you/your senior to take care of your home?

If your senior lives in a house with a large yard that needs constant upkeep or has many difficult to clean rooms, the independent senior living facility is a good option. If the house has difficult access (it has several flights of stairs or it’s located on a steep hill), your senior may isolate himself because it’s challenging to leave the house.
We at Katy's Senior Living Placement know that hiring someone for help is a solution to this sort of issue.
However, we also know that living in a place with less need for upkeep and maintenance can be more beneficial for your senior.

Do you/your senior get around quickly?

Some seniors live in a community where they have to drive to visit their friends, shop, or participate in social activities. If you or your senior no longer feel safe driving, our team at Katy’s Senior Living Placement Services can find you the perfect independent senior living community. Many of these facilities provide you with comfortable transportation options.

Do you find it challenging to stay in touch with your friends and family?

The more isolated you become, the higher the risk of developing depression or other mental health problems. Due to decreased mobility, demanding access to the house, you could end up staying inside all day long and not see your family and friends for days. Even if you can still call or chat with them online, there’s nothing as pleasant as face-to-face human connections.
Our advisors at Senior Placement Services in Surprise, AZ, can help you identify the most suitable living facility, with structured activities like arts, sports, and even field trips.
