Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without personal assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, allowing residents more free time to live active lives as they wish. 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.

While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical professionalls, they may always do so. There are a variety of costs and benefits to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the plan: initial assessment fee, parking, move-in fee, cable TV, internet access, utilities, housekeeping, and private phone.
