Palm Desert Independent Living Q&A

Bella Villaggio is proud to be named among U.S. News and World Report as one of the Best Independent Living and Best Assisted Living Communities.

Independent living care costs vary, depending on amenities, location, and services provided. Contact Bella Villaggio senior living to learn more about pricing and independent living amenities.

Making the choice between an independent living or assisted living place for a loved one can be difficult, but it’s helpful to consider the amount of medical care your loved one needs. If your loved one needs more assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), like bathing, dressing, medication management, etc., then assisted living may be the best choice. Or, if a loved one needs less assistance, then independent living might be the right option. You can learn more about other helpful things to consider when making this decision, at: “What’s the Difference Between Assisted Living and Independent Living?” If your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, you may also want to consider memory care.

Independent living facilities’ services vary per community and location, but typically, independent living communities provide dining and housekeeping and focus on assisting with other daily tasks to help residents live independently as long as possible. Some senior living communities, like Bella Villaggio, also offer assisted living and memory care. These services can be added on as needs change over time.
