What does independent living at The Woodlands mean?

Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what residents think:

The most important point that influenced me to move into The Woodlands was that I could live as independently as I chose. Participate in as many, few or none of the opportunities offered here. That was freeing to me.
— Harold

Independent living residents’ lives can be as busy and fulfilling as each chooses to be. In fact, living in a senior living community like this provides more independence than if I were living in a private home, condo or apartment. There are fewer worries about maintenance, food and services. This reduces stress.
— Don F.

If anything, The Woodlands provides more independence by keeping one from being tied to regular housekeeping and food preparation responsibilities. The services are provided so that one does not have to rely on family or other support.
— Jim and Joan P.

I feel my years here have been very meaningful. When my kids (seven of them) call me, I usually have to call them back because I’m involved in activities and busy with my life. I feel my life is enhanced by moving here as I have a purpose to live the best life I can by giving of myself in any small way to help others.
