What is Independent Living?
Independent Living is a residence for Seniors who are able to perform activities of daily living, but who desire to live in a supportive and engaging environment. By living in a community, our Seniors are able to exercise their independence while enjoying the comfort, security, and confidence that accompanies the service of a professional, caring, and supportive staff available 24 hours a day.
Who is eligible to apply for Independent Living at Avila Gardens?

Avila Gardens welcomes independent men and women age 55 and over. Residents must be ambulatory without assistance, have adequate vision, and be able to reside in an independent environment.
