Overview of Delaware Independent Living

The compact, coastal state of Delaware is the second-smallest in the country, totaling just under 2,000 square miles. It is located just south of Pennsylvania and east of New Jersey, making a Delaware independent living community the perfect home base for active retirees who want to explore the many historical and cultural attractions in the area such as the Delaware History Trail, the Cape May Breakwater and the Delaware Wine & Ale Trail. There is no sales tax levied here, making shopping a popular pastime throughout the state. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy both fresh and saltwater fishing throughout the year, while food lovers flock to annual events including the fall Apple-Scrapple Festival, the World Championship Punkin Chunkin and the Rehoboth Beach Chocolate Festival.

Independent Living in Delaware Defined

Delaware independent living facilities offer healthy, active mature adults private accommodation in apartments or suites along with limited support from professional staff, daily meals in a communal dining room and amenities like small libraries, recreation rooms and local transportation to shopping malls and appointments.

Residents of these age-restricted communities are independent and healthy, without any serious medical conditions, such as memory impairment, that requires 24-hour supervision and care. Adults who in need of assistance with life’s daily activities should consider an assisted living community instead. Seniors who need medical monitoring should consider a nursing home where trained nursing staff can provide the appropriate care and services. You can find facilities that offer assisted living and skilled nursing care in Delaware in our Assisted Living and Nursing Homes categories.
