Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are taken care of, which provides residents more free time to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs 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 number of expenditures and benefits to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: parking, cable TV, internet access, move-in fee, wellness program, meals, initial assessment fee, and housekeeping. The benefits that pertain to independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, concierge services, healthcare center, community activities, transportation, security guards, and laundry service.
