Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores managed by professionalls while living your life the way you wish, you might consider the option of an Independent Living Community. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping duties are taken care of for you while you are able to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and expenses to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your service plan: initial assessment fee, field trips, housekeeping, laundry, transportation, move-in fee, meals, and private phone. The amenities that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, game/TV room, community activities, and restaurant-style dining hall.
