What types of services and amenities do independent living communities provide? How are they different from those provided in a nursing home?
Both nursing homes and independent living communities provide services like dining programs, housekeeping, and 24/7 staff for their residents.
But because independent living communities are designed to make life easier and more fun for active seniors, these communities may give residents additional options like concierge services and on-call apartment maintenance. Independent living communities may also include features that active seniors can enjoy at their leisure, such as fitness centers, hair salons, movie theaters, art studios, taverns, libraries, computer centers, and chapels.
