Is Independent Living Right for You?

If you consider your living options for your retirement years, it is important to assess your level of independence and what type of environment you see yourself living in. Independent living can be a great choice for seniors who are in good health and want to stay active but are ready to move out of their family homes.

Independent living may be a good fit for you if:

  • You are in good health
  • You don’t require assistance with daily activities
  • You enjoy living in a community
  • You would like to maintain a social life
  • You are ready to give up the responsibility of owning a home
  • You prefer not to drive

Transitioning to independent living can feel like a big decision. Take your time, talk it over with your family, and thoroughly consider all of your options.

Services Provided in Independent Living

One of the greatest benefits of independent living is the services provided on-site. Modern amenities and accessible services allow you to spend more time doing the things you love and enjoying your retirement.

Buckner Retirement Services offers both luxury townhomes and apartment homes for residents. With either choice, residents have privacy while still being part of the community.

Our services provided in our independent living include:

  • Beauty salon and barbershop
  • Indoor and outdoor maintenance
  • Wireless internet access
  • Weekly housekeeping
  • Full-service dining program
  • Transportation options
  • Community events and outings
  • Utilities included (except telephone)
  • Covered parking

These services allow residents to have easy access to everything they need daily without driving around and completing household chores. Services are designed with convenience in mind so that residents can enjoy a comfortable and stress-free environment.

Level of Support in Independent Living

The support in independent living is designed for convenience and to help seniors who are still in good health but want a little more time for themselves. Residents enjoy the free time provided when they don’t have to worry about home maintenance, laundry, and daily cleaning.

Independent living is not right for all seniors, as some residents require more daily help than the assistance provided in independent living communities. In these cases, residents are better suited for one of our assisted living or long-term care programs.

It is not uncommon for residents who start in independent living to eventually transition to a community that offers more support, like daily assistance with cooking or mobility. Our dedicated staff can make recommendations and help transition residents who may end up needing more support.
