Independent living communities offer hospitality services (dining, housekeeping, laundry services, maintenance, concierge, and social activities) that are not provided or only partially provided in senior apartments. While some of the amenities may be similar, the services provided differentiate independent living from senior apartments. In addition, many independent living communities offer assisted living or memory care on the same campus, permitting residents to age in place. This continuum of care is rarely available with senior apartments.
