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.
Many seniors choose to retire in an independent living community that has the option for assisted living because they want to plan ahead for their future. For those seniors whose needs increase while residing in an independent setting and need to transition to assisted living, St. Paul’s Plaza is designed as an “aging-in-place community.”
That means, if residents need more help with daily activities of living--like dressing and grooming--they can remain living in their same apartment. This makes the transition to a higher level of care easier and stress-free for both the resident and their family. Contact our helpful staff today for more information about our “aging in place” service model.
