Redmond Independent Living Q&A

Independent living is a type of senior living that does not offer senior services. Independent living communities are often used interchangeably with retirement communities and are reserved for older adults looking for community living. Independent living communities offer a range of services, amenities, and a schedule of activities that enhance retirement and many do offer care services so that residents can transition into assisted living or memory care if needs should change.

Assisted living may be more expensive than independent living because assisted living offers dedicated assistance with activities of daily living. These care services are often an additional charge depending on the level of care provided.

Independent living facilities like Fairwinds – Redmond are vibrant and exciting places to spend retirement. They offer residents an opportunity to pursue lifelong passions, find new hobbies, cultivate friendships, and live in a community setting without any of the stress or hassle of homeownership.

Supported living, also called assisted living, provide residents with assistance with activities of daily living. This generally includes assistance with bathing, dressing, medication management, incontinence care, and other personal care. In independent living, residents live independently and are able to manage their own personal care.

Independent living is a great option for any older adult looking to living in a community setting and avoid isolation. Because independent living communities offer full social calendars and give residents an opportunity to be healthy and well, they attract active seniors who are looking to improve their quality of life and cultivate meaningful friendships.

There are several benefits to independent living. They provide residents with a choice of activities both in and out of the community, allow residents to find new hobbies and interests while cultivating lifelong passions. Additionally, independent living communities manage all apartment maintenance and yard work so that residents have the time to do what they love most.

Because independent living does not offer care services, the cost of independent living is not covered by Medicare. Independent living requires a financial commitment and paying for independent living is often done through real estate assets, private savings, and sometimes, life insurance.
