Keeping You Informed

If a resident tests positive for COVID-19, we notify residents and their designated contacts, our employees, and the local health department. In addition, the number of active cases is shared here.

Is Independent Living Right for Me?
At independent living communities, seniors are able to relax and spend day-to-day life doing what really matters — living.
Independent living communities are residences that include apartments, meals, social activities, transportation, and amenities meant to simplify life for older adults. All of these services are included in rent, making independent living communities convenient and affordable for many older adults.
Today’s senior living options are a far cry from the past. Historically, older adults moved into a senior living community based out of need. They may have had medical issues or cognitive issues. Perhaps their loved ones made the decision for them. That isn’t the case now.
There are still senior living options like nursing homes for people struggling with serious medical or functional issues. However, the last few decades have given rise to a different kind of senior living community. One that allows older adults to focus on enjoyment, relaxation, and growth. An independent living community is one of these options.
In an independent living community you will:
Live in Apartments or Cottages
An independent living community offers the best of both worlds. You have your own private space, as well as opportunities for socializing whenever you feel like it. That’s important because community is more important than ever as we age. Research shows isolation puts seniors at higher risk for heart disease, cancer, stroke, depression, and other medical conditions.
Senior living communities like Holiday Retirement offer studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, as well as private cottages. Just like any other home, you’re able to furnish and decorate however you’d like, so it feels cozy and welcoming.
Share Common Areas
Shared spaces in independent living communities become an extension of your home. They typically include dining areas, activity rooms,a library, fitness center, chapel, and computer room. Some retirement communities may also have amenities like salons, pools, gazebos, theatres, and dog parks. Many Holiday Retirement communities have some or all of these amenities..
Dine on Chef-Prepared Meals
No more grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning up after meals. An independent living community provides meals in a restaurant-style dining room. Some senior living apartments include kitchens or kitchenettes for those times you feel like preparing your own meal.
Older adults often eat less frequently and lack variety. This puts them at higher risk for heart issues, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other medical conditions. Independent living communities can help you keep up proper nutrition, and maintain variety in your diet.
Culinary teams at Holiday retirement communities are led by executive chefs. They plan meals with input from dieticians trained in the nutrition needs of older adults. Menus include at least three entree options and several healthy choices. Our chefs are passionate about making meals delicious and well-balanced. They enjoy making residents part of the meal-planning process by hosting roundtables and collecting recipe ideas.
Benefit From Safety Features
Besides “safety in numbers,” many senior living communities offer several safety features. Living alone puts you at higher risk for:
Problems with daily activities
Holiday Retirement residents feel safe knowing they can lean on a caring community of staff and neighbors when they need help. All residents have a personal emergency response device. This device sends help with the touch of a button. No need to worry about food, supplies, icy sidewalks, or power outages during severe weather. We have proven disaster preparedness plans, abundant resources, and maintenance staff to take care of it all. We also have extensive infectious disease protocols approved by the CDC and health departments.
Participate in Activities and Events
Some people may conjure up visions of bingo and bridge when they think of senior living communities. While those are great past times that you may find in independent living communities, there’s also a wide range of activities for any interest.
Holiday independent living communities are filled with vibrant residents who have varying interests and passions. Each community has a resident experience coordinator. These staff members plan daily activities based on resident input and interests. Some of our residents enjoy fitness classes or walking clubs. Others love art classes and gardening projects. We have bowling teams, knitting clubs, and bean bag baseball tournaments. Events like live music, happy hours, entertainers, and themed parties are also favorite happenings. There’s always something going on, and plenty of people to do it with.
Receive Cleaning and Maintenance Services
Housekeeping and maintenance are usually included in rent at independent living communities. Holiday senior living communities provide housekeeping and linen services. Common areas follow strict sanitizing and cleaning protocols. Community repairs and upkeep are handled by our maintenance team
Use Complimentary Transportation
Living in an independent living community doesn’t mean you need to give up your car. Choose to drive your own car or leave the driving to someone else. Senior living communities usually offer complimentary transportation. Holiday independent living communities provide free transportation to shopping, errands, appointments, and community excursions.
As we age, our risk for car accidents increases. Senior living residents have peace of mind knowing that if they stop driving, they’re already set up with transportation for all of their local needs.
The Difference Between Independent Living and Assisted Living
Many people get confused about the difference between independent living and assisted living. One key difference is in the level of care provided.
Assisted living community staff help with personal care like dressing, bathing, and administering medication. There’s staff onsite around the clock. Some of these communities have a physician or physician’s assistant residents can use for an extra cost.
Assisted living communities are not healthcare facilities. They do not directly provide medical care or rehabilitation for people with health conditions. Seniors who need regular assistance with a medical condition live in a nursing home. Those with Alzheimer’s or cognitive issues typically live in a memory care unit. Some assisted living facilities include a memory care unit.
Independent living communities do not provide help with personal care. Rent goes toward housing, meals, utilities, maintenance, transportation, activities, and events. Residents who need extra help with daily tasks can use home health aides. These are outside providers that assist with bathing, dressing, managing medication, and other daily tasks. One benefit of going this route is you only pay for the assistance you need rather than paying a set monthly amount regardless of your level of care.
How Much Does Independent Living Cost?
The average monthly rent for independent living communities is $2,800, but varies widely by location and amenities.They are usually more affordable than assisted living, which averages around $4,000 a month. Independent living communities are less expensive because rent doesn’t account for help with daily activities like dressing and bathing. Residents can use outside providers for assistance, hiring them for as much or as little time as needed.
How To Pay for Independent Living?
People typically pay for senior living with funds from real estate, social security, and savings. Some will use bridge loans to help cover gaps between selling a home and moving into an independent living community. Loved ones sometimes chip in money if funds fall short. Many senior living residents are surprised how bundled bills can actually save them money in the long run.
Is Independent Living Right For Me?
If you’re unsure if an independent living community is the right option for you, consider these factors:
Privacy is important to you, but you also like the option to socialize with friends whenever you choose.
You like the idea of letting someone else take care of grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and maintenance, so you can focus on other things.
You don’t need help with personal care like bathing, dressing, and taking medications (Though, you can always use a home health aide to help with these tasks.).
Writing one check a month that covers rent, meals, utilities, maintenance, transportation, and activities appeals to you.
You like the option to drive your own car, or take complimentary transportation to errands, appointments, shopping, and errands.
You’re looking for more peace of mind when it comes to safety around potential falls, emergencies, severe weather, and cleaning.
See for Yourself
Consider taking a tour of an independent living community to get a feel for what it’s all about. There’s no obligation to sign a lease. A virtual or in-person tour gives you a chance to view apartments, common areas, and get all of your questions answered.
What Are My Senior Living Options?
There are a variety of senior living options available. Learn about the senior living types available.
You’ve probably heard all the terms — independent living, assisted living, nursing home, and memory care — but you might not be clear about what’s involved in each, and how they differ from one another. Learn about the different types of senior living communities and care options to help you determine which is best for you.
Independent Living Community
An independent living community is a concept pioneered by Holiday Retirement in 1971. Our founders saw a need to provide seniors with an alternative to conventional retirement living options. Today, there are over 245,000 independent living communities in the United States.
Independent living communities feel and function like private residences while providing residents opportunities to spend time with people in their same season of life. Independent senior living is a good option for people who are able to live on their own without assistance, but who would enjoy benefits like companionship, bundled bills, and all-inclusive amenities such as meals, cleaning, and transportation. Many independent living residents use outside home health care providers or aides for medical and personal care services as needed, so they can enjoy an independent lifestyle longer.
Residents of independent living communities can live as active of a lifestyle as they desire with regular opportunities to participate in fitness, off-site community outings, social activities, games, and events. Some independent living community residents choose to have their own cars, although complimentary scheduled transportation is provided for all residents.
Monthly rent at an independent living community typically includes:
Housekeeping and linen services
Activities and events
Staff onsite from morning until early evening
Emergency response devices
Assisted living communities are suited for seniors who need extra help with activities like managing medication, bathing, and dressing. Residents have access to community rooms and planned activities. Assisted living facilities don’t provide as much medical care and personal assistance as nursing homes. If residents begin experiencing severe mobility issues or severe cognitive issues like dementia and Alzheimers that extend beyond the level of care assisted living staff provide, they will likely need to transition to memory care or a nursing home.
Monthly rent at an assisted living community typically includes:
Housekeeping and linen services
Help with personal care
Emergency response devices
Many facilities have a staff health care provider who residents can use for an additional cost.
CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Communities)
CCRCs offer multiple levels of care in one location, ranging from independent retirement living to assisted living and nursing home services. Admittance into advanced care programs may be restricted to residents from within the CCRC’s independent living component.
CCRCs are ownership-style senior communities that typically require a down payment, long-term contract, and monthly fees. AARP pegs the average down payment on a CCRC retirement community at around $329,000, but reports some are as high as $1 million. Monthly fees might range from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
Your physical, mental, and safety needs increase substantially as cognitive issues progress. Alzheimer’s and memory care facilities offer specialized care and programs for individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other memory loss. They provide a safe and physically secured environment.
Alzheimer’s/memory care options may operate as stand-alone facilities or as separate wings in an assisted living community. Memory care offers 24/7 onsite staff to assist residents as needed. A locked environment allows residents to move around the assisted living space freely without the danger of wandering off. The average cost of memory care is around $5000 per month.
Respite care is a short-term stay within an assisted living facility or nursing home that allows primary caregivers a break or gives the resident a trial stay to get acquainted with the service provider. Respite care may take place in a health care facility, retirement community, or adult day care. Private insurance typically does not cover respite care. Medicaid sometimes covers part of costs. Medicare helps with respite care costs for up to five consecutive days for people receiving hospice care.
Nursing homes provide 24-hour skilled care for seniors on a long-term basis. They also serve seniors who require short-term nursing care or rehabilitation assistance. Nursing homes provide the highest level of care of the senior living options. Nursing homes are ideal for people who can’t care for themselves but don’t require hospitalization. Nursing homes typically have dining rooms, community areas, activities, and outings appropriate to the population.
Hospice care is designed for terminally ill individuals in the final phase of their illness. Care may be provided in a range of settings including private homes, hospice facilities, or nursing homes. Hospice care focuses on comfort rather than treating a terminal disease or condition with the intention of extending life. Medicine and medical care treats the symptoms of the condition, not the condition itself.
People typically enter hospice care when they have 6 months or less to live. Hospice care teams are made up of medical professionals, behavioral health professionals, and volunteers.
Home care allows seniors to receive in-home assistance based on frequency and level of need, and may include daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and other personal care, as well as housekeeping, meals, and medication. Home care is available for private home and independent living and assisted living, but may be restricted in facilities providing higher levels of care.
Home care providers and aids allow seniors to pay for only the extra services they need, when they need them, which can be a cheaper option than moving to a higher level of care. At Holiday Retirement, home care is available through outside agencies, many of whom have offices at the community.
