What is Independent Living?

The Retirement Center is for active seniors who want to live in the privacy of their own apartment with numerous amenities such as housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, fitness programs and equipment, group outings, social activities, and optional medical assistance available if a need arises. In addition to these benefits that our residents enjoy, there is also a dining room that serves three delectable meals a day. With all of their needs met, our Independent Living residents are more free to enjoy the company of other residents and pursue recreational or social activities.

Are Independent Living apartments right for me?

Shannondale’s Independent Living communities are designed for those who desire to live in their own private space and enjoy their independence while still living an active lifestyle with other residents at the same stage in life.

Residents who live in our Retirement Center are able to care for themselves and their own daily needs. They are free to schedule their own agendas and go on outings whenever they desire. There is also additional support available in case assistance is needed.

The Retirement Center is attractive to our residents because they can live independently in their own private apartment in a secure, social environment. The included housekeeping and maintenance services mean that our residents don’t have to give any thought to repairs. If you are looking for a worry-free apartment living situation where you can spend less time doing upkeep and more time living life to the fullest, then look no further than Shannondale Independent Living!
