Paragould, Arkansas

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the chance to continue to live an active life while assuring their care requirements are fulfilled. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of while you are able to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are an assortment of expenses and advantages to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your service plan: meals, parking, private phone, transportation, wellness program, internet access, laundry, and utilities. The amenities associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, concierge services, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, security guards, and private rental hall.
