Independent Living

If you or your loved one desire the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores taken care of while living at your own pace, you might consider the option of an Independent Living Community. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of while you are unrestricted to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each 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, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired.
