Frequently Asked Questions

What types of activities are available for residents at an independent living community?

Both nursing homes and independent living communities offer fun weekly outings and activities for residents to participate in, but the types of activities differ at each type of community. Residents can participate in entertainment activities such as board games, movie matinees, and crafts that at both types of facilities. But activities and events at nursing homes are more focused on in-community entertainment, and they require much more specialized supervision due to the residents’ care needs. In contrast, independent living communities can also host outings and events that include more physical activity, such as museum trips, community-hosted barbeques at a local park, walking clubs, or beanbag baseball. Events can also include restaurant outings and happy hours.

For active seniors who wish to enjoy a flexible community lifestyle with others like themselves, Sunshine Retirement Living’s independent living communities are the perfect option.
