Like the Active Adult options, Independent Living Communities are for seniors who are still able to live on their own and care for themselves.  Studio, one- and two-bedroom units may be offered.  Apartments are equipped with a full kitchen or kitchenette but the communities typically offer meal plans which may include 1, 2 or 3 meals.  Maintenance, housekeeping and laundry service are usually included.   Common areas include lounges and sitting areas and rooms for hobbies, crafts and games.  Communities may have on-site hair salons, movie theaters, business centers, swimming pools and fitness centers.  There are social groups for all types of interests and many offer transportation to medical appointments and organized outings to local stores and attractions.  The facilities are staffed 24 hours per day and may be equipped with medical alert systems.  Assistance for medication management and daily activities is not traditionally included although some communities may allow, and even help arrange, outside home health companies to come in for those who need temporary assistance.
