The continuum of care for seniors begins with Independent Living (IL). Typically, an IL unit is not different from traditional housing but is better designed from an architecture standpoint with various design interventions taking care of seniors. There will be better lighting, mobility facilitation, and aspects of universal design. Bathrooms and kitchens are designed to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, hallways and doors are wider and tiles and flooring are anti-skid. Socialization plays an important role in uplifting the atmosphere of the IL and improving the health stature of the residents.
