When the preferred option is to leave the home due to the complexity of keeping a home or apartment functional, the senior may wish to move into an independent living complex. This is an apartment building for seniors. They do not offer services, but most allow the senior to privately bring in the caregiver staff to assist them as needed. Caregivers provide like services as in the home. The advantage of an independent living situation is a ready group of new friends and activities for the senior. These units may be paid for privately and there are options for low rent housing as well.
