High Springs, Florida

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the chance to live an active life while guaranteeing their essential needs have been met. Basic needs 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 choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. 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 choose. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: housekeeping, meals, initial assessment fee, private phone, parking, transportation, field trips, and laundry. The benefits that pertain to independent living include laundry service, restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, game/TV room, transportation, concierge services, security guards, and fitness center & swimming pool.
