Tallahassee, Florida

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionalls while living life at your own pace, think about the option of independent living. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which provides occupants more opportunities to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the care plan: housekeeping, meals, utilities, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, parking, laundry, and cable TV. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, private rental hall, concierge services, golf course, and laundry service.
