Ridgefield, Connecticut

Independent Living

If you would benefit from the convenience of having your chores taken care of while living at your own pace, think about the option of an Independent Living Community. Seniors may live their lives as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers. There are a variety of advantages and expenses to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: utilities, cable TV, internet access, initial assessment fee, meals, laundry, Waiting list deposit, and field trips. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, healthcare center, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, community activities, security guards, and fitness center & swimming pool.
