Southbury, Connecticut

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a good solution. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing 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 ages 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 vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of expenditures and advantages to consider while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the plan: cable TV, move-in fee, parking, field trips, private phone, meals, Waiting list deposit, and laundry. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, security guards, golf course, concierge services, community activities, laundry service, and private rental hall.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is a major factor in determining what facility works best. The rent burden for Southbury is around 21.5% of the average person's monthly income. Southbury has a median home value of about $310,647 and the median cost of rent is $1,754 per month per month.
