Independent Living

Independent living is a different type of care that can offer seniors social chances when they don't necessarily need medical attention. Security, facilities, social gatherings, and other things can be included in these apartment-style residences.


  • Independent seniors experience a greater sense of purpose.
  • They have chances to succeed, can make a difference in the lives of their loved ones, friends, and neighbors, and can continue to engage in hobbies they have always enjoyed.
  • Even if they appear minor, the opportunity to set and achieve goals has a significant influence.


  • Lack of proper medical care and facilities
  • Lack of financial assistance
  • There may be a lack of social or familial support
  • There may be an issue with the security

Tips for the care provider

  • Make the necessary changes to the home's environment to increase safety.
  • Learn about and engage with technology
  • Keep a balanced diet.
  • Maintain a regular exercise schedule
  • Be social and active.
