So-called "independent living retirement communities are designed for seniors who are relatively independent both physically and socially. The primary perk in this kind of retirement community is intenance-free living; no house and lawn upkeep, linen service, trash pickup, transportation, and lunch served in a common dining center. These kinds of retirement community homes give seniors the freedom to truly enjoy the "Golden Years". Activities are another big part of independent living communities and often include crafts, exercise classes, live entertainment, movies, parties, outings and overnight bus trips, each adding a new dimension to the senior's experience. Residents generally choose apartments from one of three floor plans.
