Complete guide to independent living

Newtown, Connecticut

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the upkeep of the property might be a deterrent to an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid alternative. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, which provides seniors more opportunities to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests.

The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your care plan: Waiting list deposit, wellness program, parking, transportation, field trips, private phone, move-in fee, and housekeeping.
