Arvada, Colorado

Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having chores and housekeeping maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect fit. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping chores are taken care of while you are able to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with 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 companion if they choose. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of advantages and expenses to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your plan: housekeeping, meals, parking, initial assessment fee, cable TV, utilities, transportation, and internet access. The benefits that pertain to independent living include transportation, golf course, private rental hall, game/TV room, security guards, community activities, laundry service, and beauty salon & barber shop.
