What is independent living?

Independent living communities are also known as retirement communities, retirement homes or senior housing. Independent senior living is for older adults looking for an active, engaged lifestyle free of day-to-day chores.


Independent Living at Sunrise

Independent Living at Sunrise. A Wide Range of Options

Many of our independent full-service, senior living communities are Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) and offer independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing respite stays, and memory care. By providing a full slate of care, you can feel secure knowing that, should your needs change, you can continue living at Sunrise.

The range of services and amenities for Independent Living residents varies by location and may include:

  • Gracious accommodations with a variety of senior-friendly floor plans
  • Daily social, cultural and recreational activities
  • Exercise, fitness and wellness programs
  • Fine restaurant-style dining with diverse menu options designed for senior nutrition
  • Private dining accommodations
  • Housekeeping, linen and transportation services
  • Beautifully decorated common areas and landscaped outdoor areas
  • 24-hour medical alert system and emergency response programs in every residence
  • Beauty/barber shops, banking, concierge service and other on-site conveniences
