Independent Living for Active Seniors
We’re pleased to offer independent living as an option for seniors in our communities who wish to enjoy and maintain an independent lifestyle. Any one of the Franklin Park® senior living communities may offer a range of housing options for residents, including assisted living and memory care services in addition to independent living.
Residents who choose this housing option remain vital parts of the community they choose, with access to our resort-style amenities, including fitness centers, social events, outings, and other activities. Residents are free to come and go and enjoy the retirement lifestyle they desire without the demands and burdens of home ownership. Such as travel, golf, volunteering, or engaging in other activities and social pursuits in and outside of the residence.
The residents of Franklin Park® are also welcome to take advantage of a variety of services, including our meal program, housekeeping, laundry, fitness center, transportation services, home and personal security, and many more. The goal of every one of our communities is to ensure all of our residents are safe, secure, and happily engaged and active, both mentally and physically.
At Franklin Park®, our residents can enjoy their independence without ever feeling alone.
The Difference Between Independent and Assisted Living
Because residents of independent living communities may take advantage of certain support services, such as meals, housekeeping, or transportation, it can be confused with and is often called “Assisted Living” at times. It is important to discern the difference between this option and what is known as licensed assisted living.
The key difference is in licensing and care. Assisted living requires a license, and is monitored by the state and caring staff are available to assist with regimens such as bathing, grooming dressing and medications, while independent living does not. Although most of the services offered in an independent living setting are carried over into assisted living options, the specific care services are always tailored to each resident’s individual needs.
