Independent Living

If you would like the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks taken care of while living at your own pace, you might consider the option of an Independent Living Community. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are taken care of, which permits occupants more opportunities to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups 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 companion if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionalls, they always have the option. There are an assortment of expenditures and advantages to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your plan: private phone, transportation, housekeeping, utilities, field trips, initial assessment fee, wellness program, and internet access. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include laundry service, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, concierge services, golf course, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, and transportation.
