What is Senior Independent Living?

Senior independent living is a form of community living in which senior residents reside independently. Residents of independent living communities have their own private apartments and typically need little to no assistance with daily physical activities. The added benefits of independent senior living Chula Vista include community socialization, easy-access to daily prepared meals, life enrichment activities and programs, transportation, maintenance staff on-site, and around-the-clock security.

Most senior independent living communities offer hospitality services, such as housekeeping, meals, and laundry, and many also have convenient access to dining, entertainment, group outings, and more. Senior independent living is ideal for senior individuals who are still able to live alone.
