Your Guide to Moving Into Independent Living: Yes You Can Keep Your Car

Are you considering moving out of your home and still want to stay active? Independent living is perfect when you’re looking for a smaller space but still want to maintain your vivid social life. This means yes, you can keep your car! Learn all about independent living transportation and some of the amazing benefits that the communities offer.

Accommodations For Your Personal Vehicle

Many independent living communities offer carports and expanded parking lots, allowing you to keep your personal vehicle.

With the freedom to come and go as you please, keeping your car means you never have to miss an event or get together.

Some may charge you for keeping your car, such as a parking spot rental fee, however many independent living communities offer this service included with your stay.

Community Provided Transportation Services

If you don’t have your own car, or just don’t feel like driving, don’t worry! Independent living communities provide transportation services. Included in the community rental fee, these services will typically drive you anywhere within a particular mile distance.

We value our residents’ independence, which is why we provide safe and reliable transportation for all of their needs. Residents can make appointments during regularly scheduled, open shuttle hours to a location of their choice within a 15-mile radius of their Independence Village community. – Tara Tomcsik-Husak, Director of Life Enrichment
