What is a Senior Independent Living Community?

A senior independent living community is essentially the same thing as a retirement community but tends to have more access to amenities and resources than your average retirement community. These communities are ideal for seniors who want to maintain a high level of independence yet are attracted to the idea of assistance when they need it. At Lourdes Noreen McKeen, our independent seniors enjoy their own luxury apartments, many with views of the breathtaking West Palm Beach waterfront and views of Palm Beach Island and the Atlantic.

Our residences also enjoy a wealth of planned social activities, access to transportation, meals, help with housekeeping, and a comfortable, safe environment with 24-hour emergency response personnel.

What Levels of Care can I Expect at an Independent Living Community?

Independent living varies from other levels of senior care retirement housing – such as assisted living or skilled nursing – primarily in that residents live safely without the help of others. While Lourdes Noreen-McKeen does offer more comprehensive services for seniors who require them, our independent communities are an ideal housing option for seniors who don’t need a high level of care or around-the-clock medical assistance.

Many seniors who anticipate the realities of aging take comfort in the assurance of a housing community such as Lourdes Noreen-McKeen where they can have access to enhanced levels of care –either for them or their loved ones – as they need them.

How is the Independent Living Community at Lourdes Noreen-McKeen different?

Every retirement community is not the same. In fact, they vary significantly on important items such as amenities, activities, dining options, religious services, health and wellness programs and support resources. These are just a few ways Lourdes Noreen-McKeen’s luxury independent living community sets the bar:

  • Social Activities: With a wide range of events planned weekly, our residents never run out of options to make friends, hang out with old ones, or share a few laughs. Social events help seniors stay active mentally, physically, socially and even spiritually. From dinner to cards, to transportation to nearby shopping and cultural events, we have something for everyone.
  • Dining: If you like the idea of dining options in your building you’ll love our menu. Enjoy delightful meal plan options for intimate dining in your room or spend quality time with friends and loved ones in our dining room.
  • Wellness Programs: In addition to on-staff medical professionals, our senior wellness programs promote healthy, safe living with a wide range of senior health services. Enjoy regularly scheduled group fitness classes such as yoga, core training, Pilates and aquatic programs as well as non-emergency medical services such as ophthalmology, dentistry, dermatology, and cardiology, onsite or at local offices.
  • Transportation: Getting around downtown West Palm Beach is pretty easy considering the central location of Lourdes Noreen-McKeen. Fine dining, shopping and social activities are just outside the door. But for those residents who wish to venture a bit farther we can arrange bus or taxi services.
  • Religious Services: Lourdes Noreen-McKeen was founded on Catholic values and we offer these type of spiritual services for those of the Catholic faith. With daily mass in two onsite chapels and an onsite priest, our residences can meet all of your spiritual needs. Learn more about our Catholic retirement community.

So you see, senior independent living can be so much more than a place where other seniors live. At Lourdes Noreen-McKeen, we offer a beautiful luxury setting with sweeping views of the water and tons of planned amenities that keep our residents energized, socially active and spiritually engaged all year round. If you are seeking a senior independent living facility in a year-round warm locale, our suite of luxury residences may be exactly what you are looking for.
