Castle Rock Assisted Living vs. Independent Living

Castle Rock Assisted Living vs. Independent Living

The number of Americans over the age of 65 is estimated to reach 95 million by 2060, almost double what it was in 2020. With this statistic, it’s no wonder the variety of high-quality senior living options also continues to grow. 

If you’re ready to embrace a less stressful, more maintenance-free lifestyle, you’ve probably been researching these senior living options and wondering what’s best for you. There is a wide range of choices out there, but independent living (sometimes called 55+ or retirement neighborhoods, condos, or apartment buildings) and assisted living communities are the most popular. 

Although assisted living and independent living have several things in common, their significant differences might help you decide which one is right for you or your loved one. Sometimes, a single community like BridgeWater Castle Rock will have both options available at the same location. Having access to both assisted living and independent living means that you won’t have to worry about moving if your health needs change in the future. 

Keep reading to learn more about what BridgeWater Castle Rock has to offer and who might benefit most from joining its communities.
