About independent living

What is independent living for seniors? Independent living is for older adults who want to live in a vibrant residential community: you maintain your independence and take care of your schedule and decisions while staff take care of household chores and duties like cooking, cleaning and landscaping. You need minimal or no assistance with daily activities like dining, bathing, getting dressed, or managing medications properly. Independent living brings a mix of freedom and connection since you can connect with peers at your choice of social activities and shared amenities.

What’s included in the monthly cost of independent living? At Amica’s private retirement residences in condo-style buildings, seniors pay a monthly rental fee that covers accommodation, maintenance, meals, entertainment, recreational activities, amenities, transportation, and more. You can choose from a variety of suite floor plans and decorate your own suite, with access to premium features and amenities. You have the freedom to plan your time, invite friends and family to visit, and come and go as you wish. Fresh and delicious meals and snacks prepared by a Red Seal chef, and weekly housekeeping and linen laundry services are all included. You can also take advantage of a range of optional but recreational events and social outings. Want to cook for yourself or guests when the mood strikes? You can still enjoy preparing your own snacks or meals in your own in-suite kitchenette or full kitchen (setups vary depending on your location), as well as having the option of hosting a gathering in the residence’s private dining room. Here’s a full refresher on what is independent living.

Care costs are not included but are available a la carte or as part of a bundle of services. Should your needs change, or you temporarily need assistance while recovering from an illness, injury or surgery, you have peace of mind knowing that professional care, support and monitoring are available 24/7.
