Independent Living Survey

To help ensure Essex County Council include the views of Essex residents when they develop plans and deliver services they are asking for your feedback about Independent Living communities.

What are Independent Living Communities?

Independent Living communities are for people who want to enjoy healthy, active and independent lifestyles in their later years.

Anyone can be a resident as long as they are over 55 and live close to an Independent Living development in Essex.  You do not have to need care and or any support services.

Essex County Council want to hear from people in Essex who might consider moving to an Independent Living community, whether currently using health and social care services or not.

The following information leaflet provides further information about Independent Living communities.  Independent Living Leaflet Plain Text
