Independent Living: Apartments and Villas

What is Independent Living?

Independent living is a housing arrangement designed exclusively for seniors, generally those aged 55 and over. Our independent living at Sunset Senior Living includes our Sunset Apartments and Villas. This type of housing is friendlier to seniors, often being more compact, with easier navigation and no maintenance or yard work to worry about. Residents of independent living communities are also welcome to utilize the general community common areas and activities.
