Independent Living

If you want the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks handled while living at your own pace, you might want to consider 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 an opportunity to use their time as they wish, 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 age groups and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each 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 differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the care plan: utilities, move-in fee, Waiting list deposit, cable TV, transportation, internet access, laundry, and field trips. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include game/TV room, transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, concierge services, private rental hall, and restaurant-style dining hall.
