Monticello, Arkansas

Independent Living

If you want the convenience of having your chores handled while living life the way you want, think about the option of independent living. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are accounted for, allowing residents more free time to live active lives as they see fit. 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 backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space 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 vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are an assortment of benefits and expenditures to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the care plan: parking, wellness program, transportation, initial assessment fee, Waiting list deposit, utilities, cable TV, and internet access. The luxuries associated with independent living include concierge services, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, game/TV room, security guards, and laundry service.
