What is independent living?

Atria’s independent living communities cater to active older adults seeking a simplified lifestyle – one that’s engaging, socially connected and free from daily responsibilities like housekeeping and home maintenance.

Independent living communities are ideal for older people who require no assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). People who have difficulty with ADLs, such as bathing, getting dressed, incontinence management or medication assistance, may want to consider Atria’s assisted living communities.

Why do older adults choose independent living?

Independent living provides older adults with everything they need to maintain their independence as they age. Home maintenance, housekeeping and meal preparation are taken care of, and social events and fitness opportunities allow them to stay connected with friends and neighbors.

What sets Atria apart from other independent living options?

Atria’s independent living communities offer more than just a life of leisure. We’re all about promoting overall well-being through a whole-person approach to aging that includes four key lifestyle choices: exercise, connection, nutrition and goals.

And our residents find everything they need to make wise choices – healthy dining options, exercise classes, a vibrant social environment and meaningful opportunities to learn and grow – right outside their doors.

Every Atria community is designed with these choices in mind. Along with a professional, 24-hour staff, here are some of the services and amenities that make it easy for our residents to enjoy greater well-being:

  • Chef-prepared meals in on-site dining venues
  • Scheduled transportation to local events, errands and appointments
  • A social calendar with daily opportunities for learning, creativity, fitness and fun
  • Housekeeping service
  • Private apartments with personal alert systems in case of emergencies

How much does independent living at Atria cost?

Monthly apartment rates vary from community to community and depend on the square footage and floor plan you choose.

Atria communities offer private-pay rental apartments (some offer cottages or villas). No buy-in fee is required, and most Atria communities offer month-to-month rental terms. Residents pay a single monthly rate that includes dining, events, housekeeping, apartment and community maintenance, and scheduled transportation.

To learn more about specific rental rates, contact the Atria community near you.

Can I bring my own furniture? What about my pet?

Absolutely. This is your home, and you should have all the comforts and furnishings you enjoy. Atria residents take pride in decorating their apartments and adding their own personal touches to their front doors. As for your furry friends, most Atria communities allow pets, but vaccinations and licensing should be current and fees may apply. Check with your preferred community for more details.

What if I need care in the future?

To better accommodate the people we serve, many of Atria’s independent living communities also offer assisted living services, so you can relax knowing you’ll be able to continue living at Atria, even if your care needs change. Additionally, most Atria communities allow residents to bring in third-party care.
