The following glossary is intended to acquaint you with some commonly used terms and to help you understand some of the available housing and care choices:

Independent living

This is for people who want to and are able to live independently but do not want to maintain a home. Many people prefer to live in a community with others of the same age and with similar interests. An independent retirement community allows for a great deal of social activities and trips. Many independent living facilities also offer prepared meals, housekeeping, social activities, transportation and provide a wide range of amenities.

This alternative is available as part of Congregate Housing, Supportive Housing, and Retirement Communities. Independent Living encourages people to socialize by providing meals in a central dining area and through scheduled social programs. This term may also be used to describe housing with few or no services such as Senior Apartment.
