Living Options At The Village at Southlake

Independent Living

Folks often ask, “What is independent living and does Blue Harbor Senior Living have independent living apartments near me?” Independent living is ideal for seniors that are still able to enjoy retirement without support but want the security of having help available when it’s needed. It’s a popular choice for seniors entering retirement due to all the great social opportunities, events, entertainment, and local cultural and shopping trips available. The best part about our independent living community is that since we take care of many of the household chores (cooking, cleaning, maintenance), while you can take advantage of all that the community life and Lexington, South Carolina has to offer. Have more questions about The Village Southlake? We’re always here to help. Contact us at (803) 356-1158 to schedule a tour. Along with the tour, we will treat you to lunch! If you’re not sure independent living is the right fit, take our assessment to see which senior living option would be best—we’re happy to help!
