Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a handy balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of while you are unrestricted to use your time as you desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without 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 vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets 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 benefits and expenditures to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: utilities, parking, cable TV, Waiting list deposit, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, private phone, and meals. The conveniences associated with independent living include community activities, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, golf course, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, and transportation.
