Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the choice to live their active lives while ensuring their care requirements are met. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your care plan: housekeeping, cable TV, Waiting list deposit, initial assessment fee, move-in fee, wellness program, field trips, and utilities.
