Glendale, Arizona

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a great alternative to this situation. Occupants may live their lives as they wish while their food is cooked by a professional 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 an opportunity to be 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 partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your plan: wellness program, transportation, Waiting list deposit, private phone, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, meals, and housekeeping. The conveniences associated with independent living include security guards, game/TV room, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, concierge services, community activities, and healthcare center.
