What Is Independent Living? Ville Platte Senior Housing Community Explains December 2, 2016

What Is Independent Living? Ville Platte Senior Housing Community Explains, Ville Platte, Louisiana

Many seniors benefit from the comfort and community of independent living, but many people don’t fully understand what it is. Village De Memoire in Ville Platte, LA, is here with more details on this important service.

The transition to life in a retirement home can be difficult, but the experience is often rewarding. Independent living gives seniors a chance to maintain control of their daily lives while joining a facility that provides them with the resources and companionship to enjoy their golden years. Residents live in their own spaces, which are commonly apartments but can also be single-family homes. They have access to a variety of shared resources like a dining hall, housekeeping and maintenance, and social activities. These services keep older people active and engaged while simplifying certain aspects of life and giving them a chance to relax.

Some senior housing communities provide minimal day-to-day help, while centers that cater to residents with greater needs may have more advanced health care services available. Seniors who need a higher level of care may wish to receive assisted living services instead.

Independent living can be subsidized for low-income residents. The best candidates are those who are able to care for themselves but would like the benefits of an active support network. A facility that provides service to seniors at multiple stages of independence may be helpful to those who want to ensure a smooth transition as time goes on and their needs change. 

Village De Memoire provides a variety of senior housing services, from independent living to long-term care. Call (337) 363-5992 for more information on services and admission. You can also learn more about the community online or by following them on Twitter or Facebook.
