Individual lifestyle without the hassles of home maintenance
Also known as retirement communities or senior living communities, independent living communities are perfect for those that want to trade the responsibility of maintaining a home for a lifestyle of social and leisure activities.
Independent living communities are designed for seniors 55 and older. Residents live in their own apartment or townhouse and have access to amenities such as dining, housekeeping, social activities, transportation, and more. Independent living does not typically provide supervision or medical care, although communities may offer those services at an additional cost.
How much does Independent Living cost?
Depending on the community, residents either buy or rent an independent living home. Rental prices start at about $2500/month for a studio in metro Atlanta. Some communities charge a one-time community fee.
