Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the ability to continue to live an independent lifestyle while assuring their care requirements have been met. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, 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 the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired.
