Auburn, Alabama

Independent Living

For many seniors, the burden of home ownership and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a good remedy. Seniors may continue to live their lives as they wish while their meals are cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and expenses to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the plan: cable TV, wellness program, meals, parking, utilities, internet access, field trips, and initial assessment fee. The luxuries associated with independent living include private rental hall, community activities, transportation, golf course, laundry service, game/TV room, security guards, and concierge services.
