At Aspira, Independent Living is for seniors who can live independently. Senior Assisted Living services range from minimal assistance to comprehensive support. This includes independent living (little to no support), assisted living (help with daily tasks, bathing, transfers, dining etc), and memory care (specialized support for people with early-stage dementia).
Key aspects include the physical environment, safety features, available amenities, the quality of social activities, cost, location, and the level of customer service. Personal preferences and lifestyle should guide your choice. At Aspira retirement residences, we place a high premium on all these factors to provide personalized and premium care within a warm, vibrant community.

Independent Living and Seniors' Apartments both offer wonderful places for retirees to live happily and with independence, but they do have some differences. Independent Living is like a large, friendly neighborhood for seniors who can take care of themselves. Included in the monthly fees are meals, fitness and recreational activities, and handy services like housekeeping. Plus, there's always someone on hand if you need urgent help.
Seniors’ Apartments offer even more independence but all the comforts of independent living. Meals and optional services would be an additional fee in Seniors’ Apartment.
