Independent Living Communities are a great option for seniors that desire on their freedom yet want to live in a safer environment providing the convenience of laundry service, meals and transportation. These communities are attractive to seniors because they provide a group dining room, staffed with waiters who take individual orders and chefs preparing restaurant quality food. They also have many extras on-site such as an exercise gym, beauty salon, transportation to shopping and restaurants as well as doctor appointments and errands. Many of these communities are designed like a senior center or even a cruise ship, with movie rooms (with popcorn), reading library or sitting areas to encourage socialism with friends and family. Most have a dedicated entertainment director who arranges fun outings, books entertainment such as guest musicians, organizes interest groups such as cards, knitting, singing, etc.
