Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a convenient balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they see fit, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: move-in fee, utilities, housekeeping, meals, field trips, Waiting list deposit, internet access, and wellness program. The benefits that pertain to independent living include laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, and security guards.
