Carefree, Arizona

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a handy balance between living an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and advantages to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your care plan: move-in fee, field trips, meals, private phone, cable TV, parking, transportation, and wellness program. The benefits that pertain to independent living include golf course, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, concierge services, game/TV room, private rental hall, and security guards.
