About Our Award-Winning Community

Independence Village of Aurora won both the 2024 Best of Senior Living Award from A Place for Mom and the 2024 Caring Stars Award from These awards are given based on real reviews left by real residents and their families. That’s why they mean so much to us — because they come directly from the people we serve.

Here’s one of those reviews:

“We toured several facilities with my aunt and chose Independence Village of Aurora. From the minute you walk in, it feels cozy and welcoming. My aunt’s apartment is clean, spacious and beautiful. She frequently comments on how good the food is; I’ve tasted it, and she’s right!

The staff is wonderful. My aunt can be a tough cookie sometimes, but the team does everything they can to make sure she gets the attention and care she needs. They keep in touch with me frequently, sharing if concerns arise and responding quickly if I have a question.

One of the reasons my aunt chose this community was the variety of activities. She’s made crafts, enjoyed live music, done yoga, gone on local bus trips and more! Just recently, she participated in Oktoberfest activities, with a giant spread of homemade German food/beverages and live music. So much fun!

Top-notch, all around!”

A Visit From Horses
At Independence Village of Aurora, we’re always horsing around, but this time, we were visited by two friendly horses who joined in on the fun. We were able to feed and pet them, and all right out front of our community!

Take Me Out To The Ball Game
It was a beautiful sunny day at Canal Park watching the Rubber Ducks play. There’s nothing like a ball game to make you feel like a little kid again!

Dinner At The Cheesecake Factory
We always seem to end up back here at the Cheesecake Factory. This is one of our favorite lunch outing spots, and residents enjoyed everything from pasta to burgers and, of course, cheesecake!

Road Trip To Kraynaks
We hopped in the community shuttle and took a trip to Hermitage, PA to one of the best Christmas stores.
