Okeechobee, Florida

Independent Living

If you would benefit from the peace of mind of having your chores handled while living life the way you wish, you might want to consider an Independent Living Community. Residents can live their lives as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. 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. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical professionalls, they always have the option. There are an assortment of advantages and costs to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: Waiting list deposit, housekeeping, laundry, internet access, private phone, field trips, parking, and wellness program.
