Senior Independent Living

Senior Independent Living Resources and Information

Senior Independent Living Communities are residences for seniors without pressing health concerns. Independent Living Centers function as apartment complexes for active seniors, and many have excellent amenities like fitness centers, tennis courts, and pools. In an Independent Living Center, seniors have the freedom of autonomous living with the fellowship of community involvement with other active adults.

Below is a collection of articles and resources created by Comfort Keepers to provide information about Senior Independent Living and related topics.

Comfort Keepers does not own or operate senior independent living communities. We are a leading provider of in-home care for seniors and the disabled. Our service is a great option for seniors who wish to live at home but need assistance with basic tasks; however, our services do not include the offering of Senior Independent Living Centers.

Seniors and Falls: Statistics and Prevention

About one third of the senior population over the age of 65 falls each year, but since many incidents go unreported by seniors and unrecognized by family members or caregivers – this estimate is most likely quite low.


Kitchen Safety for Seniors

Kitchens are one of the most dangerous areas of a home for seniors.


Keeping Seniors Safe in the Bathroom

Bathrooms can be quite hazardous ─ especially for seniors. Bathrooms typically have slippery surfaces, and nothing dependable to grasp in order to prevent falls.


When Should You Take Away the Car Keys?

Seniors are usually reluctant to give up driving. Taking the car keys removes their own ability to drive to the store, church, senior center, or library ─ or to simply meet up with friends for coffee. The experience can be quite traumatic.


Stay Safe and Independent

June is National Safety Month, so for seniors, it is a good time to take steps to make them safer. By increasing seniors’ safety, they can not only experience better health and wellbeing but also stand a greater chance of living in their own homes independently for as long as possible.


The Cost of Medicare Fraud

Numerous changes in healthcare laws over the past several years have left an opening for fraudsters to take advantage of seniors in creative ways.
