Independent living communities are housing designed for seniors 55 and older. Individuals live in their own apartment or house, but have access to amenities such as housekeeping, social activities, dining, transportation, and more. Independent living does not typically provide supervision or medical care, although individual communities may offer those services at an additional cost.
How much does Independent Living cost?
Independent living situations vary based on the lifestyle options that are important to your senior, so it is important to compare actual costs before deciding. Some independent senior living options require an up-front fee, with monthly service fees and others are simply month-to-month. Prices start at about $2750/month for a studio in Los Angeles.
