Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the maintenance of the property might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient alternative. Seniors can continue to use their free time as they wish while their meals are prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by 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 prefer. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your care plan: field trips, parking, cable TV, internet access, move-in fee, housekeeping, private phone, and laundry. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, transportation, security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, and private rental hall.

Cost of Living

The neighborhood where a care facility is based can have a major effect on the cost of care. Cost of living is a major factor when determining which community is best for your family.
