What is Independent Living?


The perception of many people is that aging means slowing down, health problems, and diminished quality of life. The good news, however, is that due to many factors including medical advancements, diet, and exercise, more and more people are living longer and healthier lives. Just because your aging doesn’t mean that you have to sit on your couch all day knitting. The world is open to active seniors who are healthy and vibrant with a zest for life, socialization, and adventure. One great solution for seniors who want to enjoy an active livestyle is independent living. As many people age, they don’t necessarily feel like taking care of a big home and a yard. Instead, they want to spend time doing things and with people they love. At LakePoint Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, we’ve explained some of the great benefits to independent living for active seniors below.


Independent living is community living, much like an apartment complex, for active seniors. These apartments allow seniors to live around people that they can enjoy activities with, but also maintain their independence.

Fun & Socialization

One of the greatest benefits of independent living is the fun atmosphere. There are many outings, activities, and events to participate in that will keep you having a great time each day. Common activities in independent living include golfing, dances, shopping trips, sightseeing trips, game nights, and so much more.
