The Nation’s Most Trusted Senior Placement Organization

- according to TrustPilot, one of the world’s biggest online review communities.


Kevin was there for us from beginning to end, answering our many questions and offering helpful suggestions and insights. He made this extremely difficult transition much more bearable for us. I highly recommend this service. Angela
The advisor was extremely helpful and caring during a difficult and emotional time for me. She helped me find a good safe place for my husband. In a situation where I couldn’t personally check out the facility because of the virus quarantine, I felt confident in her recommendation of the care facility I chose. Terri
Bonnie was amazing. She helped set up video visits with my mother in the hospital and explained well her placement options. She talked with my wife and I at length and found my mother an excellent place for her new home. Jeff M.D.

What is Independent Living?

Simply put, Independent Living is there for those who need more socialization than living alone at home. They don’t require medical assistance, but may need a little help around the house.  

Independent Living communities provide a personal apartment, with one or two bedrooms, along with their own kitchen and laundry room. Residents also enjoy the added choice to eat with friends in a community dining room with prepared meals. There are no living restrictions, and seniors have the freedom to come and go whenever they please. The primary goal of independent living is community.

Answers to the Most Common Questions About Independent Living

When Should We Consider Independent Living For Our Loved One?
Senior Independent Living Placement Services Nationwide | CarePatrol - il2

An Independent Living community is for those seniors who can care for themselves but are needing more socialization with others.  There are several things to consider to understand when Independent Living may be a benefit for your loved one(s).  A tall tale sign is a sudden or gradual decline in socialization.

Friends move away or pass away leaving your parent(s) feeling isolated or depressed.  A lack of socialization has been linked to elderly depression.  Sometimes with those feelings seniors tend to be less active in the community.  You may notice them driving less than they used to, or not going to the bank or shopping as much.

These feelings could also explain why they could be missing doctor appointments or are late for activities that they have planned.

What Services Are Usually Available In Independent Living?
