Homestead, Florida

Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the convenience of having housekeeping taken care of by professionals, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are taken care of while you are unencumbered to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and benefits to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the service plan: housekeeping, utilities, meals, cable TV, parking, private phone, field trips, and transportation. The benefits associated with independent living include golf course, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, community activities, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, and private rental hall.
