Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a good alternative. Frequent needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing seniors more opportunities to live their lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to keep in mind when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the plan: parking, housekeeping, utilities, cable TV, internet access, private phone, wellness program, and laundry. The benefits that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, concierge services, transportation, game/TV room, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, and beauty salon & barber shop.
