Independent Living

Horizontal Rule Independent Living

An independent living community in the Pittsburgh area is a great choice for active seniors. Some seniors find that home maintenance becomes overwhelming or some simply no longer wish to live alone. For those seniors, independent living is a good consideration. It is ideal for those seniors who are able to live and function independently in their own apartment, yet wish to have the companionship and support of other seniors.

The goal of independent living is to create an environment where residents remain as independent as possible, while the community provides the environment and services to make life easy, enjoyable, and healthy for independent senior residents. Independent living communities usually provide meals, social activities, transportation to appointments and planned outings. With regular healthy meals, decreased stress, and stimulating activities and educational opportunities, seniors in independent living communities often thrive compared to those who remain alone at home. Other offerings at independent living centers typically include:

  • Housekeeping services
  • Laundry facilities
  • Beauty and barber shop on site
  • Wellness clinics
