Benefits of Independent Living

Benefits of Independent Living

Are you or your loved one in the planning stages of retirement? More and more, retired seniors are looking for a carefree lifestyle that frees them from the daily responsibilities of owning a home while giving them more time to enjoy the things they love. If you are ready to experience low-maintenance living combined with new opportunities to live life to the fullest, then independent living might be right for you.

What is independent living?

Independent living communities are designed for active, older adults who want to spend their retirement years without the worries and hassles of home ownership. These residents don’t require routine medical care or assistance with activities of daily living, but benefit from the luxury of regular housekeeping, meal preparation, quality amenities, and scheduled activities.

At The Oaks at Bartlett, our independent living community offers a worry-free lifestyle filled with engaging social events, wellness programs, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share the same passions.
