Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid solution to this situation. You or your loved one may live their lives as they desire while their meals are prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the service plan: field trips, Waiting list deposit, utilities, meals, laundry, internet access, parking, and initial assessment fee. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, laundry service, and private rental hall.
