Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors an equilibrium between living an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the basic tasks of housekeeping and chores. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of while you are able to use your time as you desire. 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. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your service plan: Waiting list deposit, transportation, cable TV, laundry, utilities, parking, wellness program, and private phone. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include laundry service, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, concierge services, community activities, transportation, and healthcare center.
