Independent Living

IL's are not licensed and offer a variety of services.  Some are affiliated with churches, schools or other community programs.  They usually have a minimum age requirement and rent month-to-month.  Medical are is not provided but most will arrange for independent home health services if needed on a short-term basis.

Residents requiring on-going medical care need to make other arrangements for housing.

Independent Living Communities typically offer full or partial kitchens, some meals in a common dining room, housekeeping, paid utilities, laundry facilities, 24-hour staffing, and private areas for tenant use.

A positive feature is that they often charge competitive rates for rent and services because they are not subject to the same regulations as licensed communities.
