Independent Living in Seattle
Independent living (also commonly referred to as retirement communities) offer the least amount of care to seniors. For some seniors, it simply makes more sense to rent than to own a home since the cost of maintaining a house is so high.
Freedom is a large part of why many elders choose independent living in Seattle. Many retirement communities though are also used for seniors to get their foot in the door should anything go awry, i.e. many elders panic after hospital discharges because they need to find an assisted living community pronto! If elders are already residents in an independent living community however, they don’t need to do the mad dash.
Independent living offers help with home maintenance and security, freeing elders time to do whatever they want.
