Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a good solution to this situation. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which provides occupants more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. 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 communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private medical providers, they may always do so. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your service plan: housekeeping, transportation, move-in fee, wellness program, initial assessment fee, internet access, Waiting list deposit, and parking. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include concierge services, private rental hall, community activities, healthcare center, transportation, game/TV room, security guards, and fitness center & swimming pool.
