Standing Out From the Crowd

Independent Living, Defined.

Independent living communities support a retirement lifestyle that makes it easy to enjoy exciting, new experiences — every day. With convenient services, an array of amenities, fulfilling programs and wellness opportunities, residents often find they lead healthier, more active lives — with new friends and neighbors to share it all with.

Should I Consider Independent Living?

Anyone looking for a maintenance-free lifestyle, access to amenities and services, a host of activities, and the socialization community life offers can benefit from the independent living lifestyle. Typically, independent living is for those who:

Don’t need care or assistance with daily activities

Want to downsize to a senior-friendly home/apartment

Are looking to retire their home chores, not their lifestyle

Don’t want to live alone

Like the idea of activity-filled days surrounded by people

So if you’re a healthy senior who wants easier living and the freedom to live according to your own schedule, then yes, you should consider independent living!

I have been here for over 8 years. It’s a good place to live. I feel well taken care of and thoroughly enjoy all the things that are available to do. The staff is awesome … I love it.

— Helen Barker, resident, Cascades of Bend

“I Wish I’d Moved Sooner.”

Seniors who move to independent living communities (and their families) love how everything’s included in the monthly rent. We often hear them say they wish they’d moved sooner. Here’s why: 


No more housework. No more yardwork. No more cooking (or dishes) — unless you want to. It all adds up to having extra time to do the things that matter most.

Active Lifestyle

With so many opportunities right at your fingertips, it’s easy to be as busy as you want! That’s important because studies show staying busy and active means healthier living.

The Social Life

Isolation and loneliness can have devastating effects on your physical and mental well-being. Independent living communities have built-in social schedules and plenty of people always nearby.


Independent and senior living communities are designed with the safety of older adults in mind and feature safety measures that may also help maintain independence.

On-Site Support

Many senior independent living communities also offer assisted living and memory care options so residents can move if health needs change without having to physically move to a different location or find a new community. This ensures residents can stay where they are known and loved, eliminating the need for a stressful move.
