About Sioux Falls Independent Living

Welcome to the Sioux Falls Independent Living section of The Eldercare Channel. Aging in place is almost always the primary choice of today’s senior population, but sometimes maintaining the family home can be too much of a physical or financial burden.  Assisted living might not always be necessary, even when maintaining an entire home is not possible.  For seniors in this situation, Independent Living can be the ideal solution.

Independent Living can be as varied as the seniors who reside in them.  Retirement communities can include both houses and apartments or condos that can be individual or shared, while other homes may offer a mix of independent and shared suites and rooms.  The services on offer are equally varied, with many homes and communities offering numerous forms of recreation and exercise and with some offering things such as communal dining and access to medical care and transportation.

If you or someone you love is looking at the possibility of entering into a retirement home, let us help you make the right choice.  The Sioux Falls Eldercare Channel is brought to you by Tony Mau and the folks of Right at Home, and it is your hope that it becomes your go-to resource for information, tips, blogs, and more about all of the most important issues affecting today’s seniors.  We know that there are many important decisions to make and that there are many things to think about, which is why we offer the information you need, as well as access to local directories of Independent Living and many other senior services in your area.
