Why Independent Living?

Independent Living Communities | March 21, 2019

If you’re a senior who’s still living at home, you might be curious about what makes independent living such an attractive option for so many people in your situation. After all, the type of people who reside in independent senior living communities are just like you; they’re generally healthy, happy and need minimal assistance with their activities of daily living. There are plenty of reasons why people choose independent senior living, but here are a few of the main ones:

Social Opportunities

If you’re looking to meet new people and participate in lots of fun social activities, an independent senior living community could be the perfect place for you. At American Senior Communities, we plan social outings and provide transportation for our residents, giving them the chance to interact with the new friends they’ve made in exciting environments. In an independent living senior community, you’re sure to have lots of fun, surrounded by friends.

Support for Healthy Living

As we get older, it’s more important than ever to stay healthy and get plenty of exercise. Most of our senior living communities offer restaurant-style dining, where our residents can choose from a variety of nutritious meals designed specifically to promote good health. In addition we offer our New Energy Wellness and Thrive program, which allows our residents the chance to work with our fitness and Thrive Lifestyle Coordinators to meet their individual needs.

Safety and Security

Many seniors utilize services to contact help in the event of an emergency, but what if that service was right there in your own home? The team members at American Senior Communities regularly check in on our independent living residents to ensure they’re safe and happy. If a health emergency or injury should happen, assistance is just around the corner. Our communities in Indiana and Kentucky are located right near some of the best medical care in the country. We also provide 24 hour security so you can feel safe no matter what time of day it is.

These are just a few of the many reasons why seniors choose independent living at American Senior Communities. If you’re interested in learning more about independent senior living, visit ASCCare.com/il.
