Frequently Asked Questions

Why is independent living a good choice for seniors?

Independent living provides a sense of community and belonging and also gives peace of mind as seniors know assisted living care services are available if needed. Additionally, seniors in independent living can leave behind the stress of homeownership, the burdens of home maintenance, meal preparation, and take advantage of the senior living community’s amenities which typically include linen and laundry services, meals in a dining room, and regular housekeeping.

What is the difference between types of senior housing?

Independent living and assisted living are very similar but assisted living communities provide assistance with activities of daily living. In independent living, there are no care services provided. In both assisted living and independent living, residents enjoy access to community amenities, dining services, activities, trips and outings, and events. Some senior living communities, including Murano Senior Living, offer memory care services that cater to seniors living with dementia. Senior living communities which offer memory care often have a separate area for residents with cognitive loss, which may include a dining area for dementia-friendly meals, a separate events calendar that caters to people with memory loss, and easier-to-navigate living accommodations.
