Popular Independent Living Communities in Nassau County
Independent Living is somewhat like Assisted Living, but there are important differences between the two types of senior living. Here are some points of comparison:
- Independent Living apartments include full kitchens, with stoves and ovens. Assisted Living apartments feature kitchenettes.
- Independent Living communities do not have nurses on staff. Most Assisted Living communities have a Wellness Department that includes nurses.
- Residents in Independent Living bring in home health aides privately to help them with personal care, if needed. Assisted Living communities are staffed with home health aides who work for the community and help multiple residents each day.
- Independent Living communities serve from 1-3 meals a day in a formal dining room. Assisted Living communities serve three meals to all residents each day.
