For seniors who would prefer to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, allowing residents more opportunities to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the service plan: cable TV, utilities, internet access, private phone, wellness program, parking, transportation, and housekeeping. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include golf course, community activities, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, and concierge services.
