Independent Living in Pennsylvania Defined
Few decisions are more important than selecting the home in which one will spend their senior years. Those who choose Pennsylvania independent living will experience vibrant communities in which staff is dedicated to providing an active lifestyle and busy social calendars that balance comfort and independence with privacy. Since many retirees live on fixed incomes, it is a welcome reality that independent living allows for financial stability by often including paid meal and utility programs for residents. Independent living is targeted towards mature adults in good health who do not have serious medical conditions or personal care needs. Seniors who need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing or eating, can get the supportive care they need at an assisted living facility. Those with limited mobility or serious illness would be better suited to a nursing home. You can find communities in Pennsylvania that offer assisted living and skilled nursing services in our Assisted Living and Nursing Home categories.
