Los Angeles, California

Independent Living

If you would like the convenience of having housekeeping and chores managed by professionals while living at your own pace, think about the option of independent living. Basic tasks such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of advantages and expenditures to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: transportation, wellness program, meals, utilities, housekeeping, move-in fee, cable TV, and initial assessment fee. The benefits associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, private rental hall, laundry service, and security guards.

Local Hospitals and Health Care Providers

For many seniors, primarily those who live with chronic diseases or those needing continuing care, access to hospitals could be a motivating factor when determining which community best fits your loved ones needs. In total, there are 21 hospitals located in Los Angeles which offer emergency services and other healthcare. The top hospitals in Los Angeles include Cedars-sinai Medical Center, Kaiser Foundation Hospital - Los Angeles, and Saint Vincent Medical Center.
