Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a handy balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are free to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences 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 tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well.
