Complete guide to independent living

Darien, Connecticut

Independent Living

If you want the convenience of having housekeeping and chores managed while living the way you desire, you might consider the option of independent living. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. 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 interests. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your service plan: wellness program, meals, housekeeping, private phone, move-in fee, laundry, transportation, and internet access. The benefits that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, concierge services, transportation, laundry service, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, community activities, and beauty salon & barber shop.
