Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the convenience of having their household chores maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect option. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are free to use your time as you prefer. 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 consisting 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 there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired.
