The Complete Guide to Independent Living


For many healthy and active seniors, there comes a time in life when they no longer want to be burdened with the costs and responsibilities associated with home ownership. After many years of hard work, older adults such as these want to spend a majority of their time exploring activities that interest them, while having full access to a full range of lifestyle amenities.

If this description fits you, residing in an Independent Living community could be an ideal solution.  Residing at an Independent Living property allows seniors who are generally healthy and able to safely function on their own have an opportunity to experience the many conveniences and freedoms that such a lifestyle brings.

Frontier’s Independent Living communities provide a care free way of life. Our beautiful properties offer a wide range of services and amenities such as delicious meals, many social activities, access to convenient transportation and housekeeping.


Here is just a partial listing of the many services offered by our Frontier Independent Living Communities.


In addition, there is a wide array of amenities provided to our Independent Living residents such as:

  • On-Site Medical Director
  • Swimming Pool
  • Work out Facilities
  • Library
  • Spacious Dining Rooms
  • Recognition of Residents’ Birthdays
  • Mass Services
  • Manicures & Pedicures
  • Quarterly Events with Family
  • Veteran Ceremonies
  • Musical Performances


Our Independent Living communities are proud to offer our residents the award winning Spark™ program.

Inspired by the teachings of Maria Montessori and Dr. Cameron Camp, Spark™ provides older adults with a wide range of meaningful and life-enhancing experiences.

We offer activities and programs such as growing herbs in the garden, classes about art, baking and cooking, bingo, book club, bowling, cocktail classes, group exercise, trips to attractions, swimming, happy hours, dancing, Reading Club, Lifelong Learning lecture series, community outreach and volunteer leadership opportunities, and even beer brewing!

In addition, one of our most popular programs is Culinary Club, where our residents work directly with our chefs to gather ingredients and then prepare and cook meals themselves to enjoy with one another.

No matter what your interests are, Spark™ has something for everyone!

The Benefits of Residing at an Independent Living Property 

There are many advantages to calling an Independent Living community home, including:


For older adults, keeping up with general maintenance and other tasks related to home ownership can increasingly be more burdensome each year. Seniors who choose to reside in an independent living community no longer have to worry about housekeeping, mowing the lawn or repairs. Everything is taken care of by our highly experienced staff, so you can focus on living your best life.


Shopping and cooking meals every day can be very time-consuming. Independent Living communities offer 3 delicious meals prepared by a chef for everyone to enjoy. In addition, food is served in a spacious dining room, which allows residents to visit each other and enjoy social interaction.


One of the most enjoyable aspects of Independent Living is the many opportunities seniors have to meet people and make new friends. It is refreshing for older adults to be around peers in the same phase of life, where they can enjoy each other’s company and participate in activities together.


Some seniors struggle to stay engaged with social activities as they get older. The Independent Living lifestyle offers easy access to a wide range of classes, events, volunteer opportunities, and trips that are designed to fill residents’ days with meaningfulness, fun, and purpose. Participating in such activities is a great way to make new friends.

Affordable Independent Living for Seniors


Making the decision to move to an Independent Living Community can be the start of a wonderful new chapter in life. No longer having to worry about the upkeep and housekeeping tasks associated with homeownership leaves lots of time to pursue activities that bring joy and fulfillment to one’s days.
