Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the peace of mind of having your chores managed while living life the way you wish, you might want to consider independent living. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping are taken care of while you are able to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers. There are an assortment of expenditures and advantages to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: initial assessment fee, meals, move-in fee, housekeeping, wellness program, parking, utilities, and laundry.
