Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the upkeep of basic tasks and responsibilities. Frequent needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which permits seniors more free time to live active lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of advantages and expenses to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your care plan: utilities, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, transportation, Waiting list deposit, parking, laundry, and housekeeping.
