Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a nice balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the maintenance of basic tasks and responsibilities. Residents may live their lives as they see fit while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent care providers. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in your care plan: wellness program, meals, cable TV, Waiting list deposit, private phone, housekeeping, laundry, and transportation. The luxuries associated with independent living include laundry service, transportation, private rental hall, security guards, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, and community activities.

Cost of Living

The community where a care facility is located could have a large effect on the price of care. Cost of living is a motivating factor in determining which destination meets the needs of your loved one's needs. The median monthly price for rent in San Jose is around $2,338 and the median home value for San Jose is approximately $711,511. The rent burden for San Jose is about 22.5% of the average monthly income.
