West Hills Independent Living Q&A
For many, retiring in California is a dream come true. California has over 900 miles of coastline and mild weather year-round, making it an excellent destination for an active retirement. California also gives retirees some tax benefits. All Social Security benefit payments to retired people are exempt from personal income tax, and most military disability payments are tax exempt.
Seniors in independent living do not receive care services. Seniors in assisted living receive assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) from a well-trained compassionate staff, including on-site nurses. Additionally, independent living does not offer memory care or care for seniors with Alzheimer’s or a related form of dementia. Some communities offer a full continuum of care so that seniors can live independently and then receive assisted living services if needs change over time.
Generally, Medicare insurance and Medicaid insurance do not cover the monthly costs of independent living communities because there are no care services provided in these types of senior living communities. There are various ways to pay for senior living, including personal funds, annuity payments, and more.
Independent living communities provide a strong sense of belonging for seniors, helping seniors to stay active and avoid the dangers of social isolation. Additionally, senior independent living communities offer housekeeping services, meal services, transportation, regular outings, and more.
