Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a handy balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, allowing occupants more free time to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionals. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your plan: Waiting list deposit, internet access, wellness program, field trips, utilities, meals, parking, and housekeeping. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include transportation, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, community activities, and concierge services.
