What Is Independent Living?
Independent living communities allow active, older people to live with dignity and convenience in a community of their peers. Household chores like cooking and cleaning are handled by staff members, allowing residents to focus on what matters: connecting with neighbors and old friends, and pursuing their passions.
If you can perform daily tasks like personal grooming and dressing without help, then an independent living community is a good place for you. If you require a little assistance with some daily tasks, an assisted living community may be more appropriate. See Concordia’s assisted living care options to learn more about how we can help.

FAQs about Independent Living
What is independent living?
Independent living is designed to support a full, comfortable lifestyle for seniors. At Concordia, your options for independent living include spacious one- or two-bedroom apartments or patio homes. An independent senior living community provides residents with activities, services and other amenities while freeing them from heavy housekeeping and home maintenance chores.
What kinds of fees do independent living residents pay?
There are two types of fees associated with a CCRC: Entrance Deposits and Monthly Service Fees. The entrance deposit is the one-time, upfront investment for the residence and the contract that guarantees residents’ lifetime access to the continuum of care for the balance of their lives. The entrance deposit is based on the health benefit plan, size of residence, number of occupants and the refund plan selected. Monthly service fees are based on the health benefit plan, size of the residence and number of occupants. These fees provide each resident with certain services and amenities such as meals, transportation, housekeeping, maintenance, utilities and linen service. The Residency Agreement can help protect your assets with a choice of refund options including: 90% refundable, 50% refundable and fully declining refund entrance fee plans. The Residency Agreement offers lifetime residency of the apartment or patio home of your choice as well as the security and peace of mind knowing you have guaranteed access to the complete on-site continuum of services and care at Concordia’s on-site Health Center.

What is the difference between a monthly rental and entrance fee retirement community?
An entrance fee retirement community is an investment in Life Care, with a continuum of care guaranteed, from assisted living to rehabilitation to skilled nursing, memory care and long-term care, if the need arises. Unlike a monthly rental community, where healthcare is not guaranteed, residents of a Life Care entrance fee community don’t have to worry about the financial risk of rising healthcare costs.
