Independent Living in Arkansas Defined
Independent living is a way of life for fit and active retirees who are in good health and would like to have independence while still enjoying the benefits of living in a retirement community where they can make the most of the on-site services, including meals, housekeepers and hair salons. Arkansas independent living facilities also enable residents to come and go, and explore the local amenities in their area, such as golf courses, restaurants and theaters.
Seniors who need help with daily personal care would be better suited to an assisted living facility with round-the-clock staff. Those with dementia or other serious memory problems would be advised to live in a memory care community, which has specific safety precautions for residents with memory loss. Adults with serious medical conditions who require skilled nursing care from nurses and doctors would be better suited to a nursing home.
