What is Independent Living?

 |  Senior Living

Independent living, as exemplified by Carillon Senior Living in Lubbock, TX, refers to a housing arrangement designed exclusively for active seniors seeking a self-reliant lifestyle within a supportive community. Independent living communities tailor their amenities, programs and activities to individuals who desire autonomy and freedom from home maintenance responsibilities so they may enjoy a more engaged lifestyle.

Seniors often explore their options around independent living communities as they seek to downsize from their larger family homes. These communities provide connections with like-minded individuals and a lifestyle that emphasizes social engagement, wellness and a hassle-free living experience.
