Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient remedy to this situation. Basic tasks such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, 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 live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of expenses and benefits to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the plan: cable TV, housekeeping, transportation, internet access, laundry, wellness program, field trips, and initial assessment fee. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, laundry service, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, and restaurant-style dining hall.
