Some Arizona seniors who are looking for senior living are not looking for medical reasons. They just want to down size, and make things a little easier. They also want to live in a community of people who are at a similar station in life, share their interests, and provide them with a sense of community.
For seniors looking for these options, independent living is a great choice. Seniors from all over the country are retiring to Arizona and they have a lot of great options to choose from when they are looking for a new place to call home. The types of added services vary somewhat from community to community. In addition, some independent living communities also have assisted living floors on the campus. For those who anticipate greater care needs in the future, these can be great communities, since residents wont have to move when they have a greater need for care.
The Right Independent Living Community for You
If you are looking for some basic medical care for yourself or a loved one, some independent living communities can accommodate that. They can provide things like medication management and other minor niceties. These services are not usually covered in the basic rent, but since assisted living residents will often be living on the same campus, we can negotiate their addition to your lease there. You can also receive some light housekeeping such as maid service and laundry. For seniors who just need a bit of help from time to time, independent living has all the amenities that they are looking for.
There are independent living communities all over the Phoenix and Tucson area and statewide in other cities. We can work with you to find a location that works for you, as well as a community that has the activities that you are looking for. It is important to consider that independent living is different than some communities that bill themselves as “senior apartments.” Independent living communities have many inclusive services that account for the difference in price. If you have made your own comparisons, just keep this fact in mind.
