Complete guide to independent living

Orange, Connecticut

Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the advantage of having housekeeping handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect fit. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. 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 more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent health care providers, they may always do so. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to consider when deciding on an independent living community.
