Complete guide to independent living

Meriden, Connecticut

Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the benefit of having housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are a variety of advantages and expenditures to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the care plan: field trips, laundry, cable TV, wellness program, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, move-in fee, and Waiting list deposit. The amenities associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, golf course, laundry service, private rental hall, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, and healthcare center.
