Complete guide to independent living

Danbury, Connecticut

Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, 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 the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each 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 communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the care plan: internet access, cable TV, field trips, laundry, private phone, wellness program, housekeeping, and move-in fee. The conveniences associated with independent living include community activities, game/TV room, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, and laundry service.
