Independent Living

For seniors who would like to live primarily without personal assistance but wish for the convenience of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Seniors may use their free time as they wish while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages 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 differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are a variety of costs and benefits to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the plan: utilities, cable TV, wellness program, parking, Waiting list deposit, laundry, transportation, and meals.
