Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a great solution. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping chores are taken care of for you while you are unrestricted to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenses to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community.

The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include concierge services, game/TV room, golf course, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, private rental hall, and restaurant-style dining hall.
