La Mirada, California

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the choice to continue to live an active life while assuring their care requirements are met. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, which permits residents more free time to live active lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be 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 partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent caregivers. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: initial assessment fee, Waiting list deposit, utilities, private phone, field trips, wellness program, move-in fee, and parking. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, concierge services, healthcare center, security guards, community activities, transportation, and golf course.

Demographics and Values
