Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but the burden of home ownership might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a good solution. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the service plan: cable TV, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, meals, internet access, parking, field trips, and transportation. The amenities associated with independent living include laundry service, healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, game/TV room, and restaurant-style dining hall.
