What is independent living?
There are several types of senior living communities, and it’s best to pick the one that offers the right assistance for your needs—many of our FAQs center around the defining features of our unique community. Independent living communities are similar to regular communities, but they offer various opportunities catered to seniors who can get around on their own fairly independently. Staff is onsite to take care of tasks like housekeeping and regular maintenance, among other things.

Types of independent living communities
Independent living communities offer various floor plans and living quarters to meet the needs of their unique residents, much like the townhomes, apartments, and condos you see in cities across the country. At Fairlawn of Olympus, our cottage floor plans are available with one or two bedrooms and bathrooms, plenty of storage space, and scenic views of the surrounding community. Some even boast private patios and balconies for eating al fresco in the comfort of your own home.

Each cottage is equipped with everything needed to live independently, surrounded by a supportive and active community of like-minded seniors. Each kitchen, bathroom, and living area is crafted with high-quality materials and modern finishes. Make your cottage a home by incorporating your own furniture and decor.

Why choose an independent living facility?
Living independently can significantly improve a person’s quality of life. Independent living facilities provide a safe place for seniors to live their best lives, surrounded by opportunities to socialize, participate in fitness programs, and have fun. At Fairlawn of Olympus, we provide a variety of activities and programs tailored to seniors living within our community. With so many options, finding ways to learn, grow, and get involved is easy.
