What is Independent Living?

Independent Living gives active and independent older adults a wonderful opportunity to enjoy their current lifestyles, without the burden of home maintenance. At The Village at McLean, that means a worry-free and rewarding lifestyle in maintenance-free villas or apartment homes with a wide array of services, amenities and friends, right outside the door.

Is Independent Living the right choice for me?

Independent Living options are perfect for people who want to maintain their current active lifestyle without the responsibility of home maintenance. You’ll have the freedom to play, work out, volunteer, spend time with family and friends, even travel to far-away places – knowing that someone is looking after your home while you’re away.
