What Is Independent Living?
Senior independent living is a type of housing arrangement that was designed for adults over age 55 that do not yet require the extra services of assisted living, but are interested in a simpler living situation than their current homes.
At Nye Health Services, we offer private independent living residences in a variety of layouts that eliminate many of the challenges that you may be struggling with in your current home, such as yard work and other types of maintenance.
Benefits of Independent Living
Choosing Nye’s independent living residence allows you to be as independent as you want by bridging the gap between living in your current home and moving into an assisted living community. You can continue to live your current lifestyle in a private living space with a few perks to make your life easier, such as having a bit of extra help available whenever you need it and eliminating the burden of owning your own home.
Although continuing to live a mostly independent life for as long as you are able to is the main goal of many of our residents, we also offer a variety of extra services to eliminate many of the challenges of everyday living. Our team covers any repairs you may need, as well as every aspect of interior and exterior maintenance. We are also here to assist you with laundry, housekeeping, medication administration, and transportation if you need a little extra help.
Continuing to live in a private living space is important to our residents, but we also offer a variety of social activities to help you build friendships with the other members of our community. Each of our campuses offer unique amenities that make it easy to safely spend time with other people, such as our coffee shop, ice cream shop, fitness facilities, small social distancing group exercise classes as well as social and recreational programs.
While current public health regulations are in effect that impact visitations to the surrounding restaurants, movie theaters, places to shop, and various outdoor recreational activities, each campus will be offering other unique sources of entertainment on-site.
Your health and safety are top priorities at Nye’s independent living communities. Each resident is equipped with an emergency call system that connects you to our nursing team at any time of day or night, and our secure building is staffed 24/7. We offer transportation to appointments and have certain types of in-home care available onsite if you need it, and we are paying close attention to local guidelines in order to keep our current activities and community spaces as safe as possible.

Cost of Independent Living
The average cost of independent living varies depending on the state you live in, the amenities your residence offers, and the level of care you need.
It is important to look beyond the sticker price to make sure that the independent living community you are interested in offers everything you need, as a low cost option may not reflect the level of care that may be required.
Choosing independent living also means that many of the other expenses you are already paying for are covered, such as maintenance, meals, and medical care, which can make the residence you choose more affordable.
