Complete guide to independent living

Canton, Georgia

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a nice balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. You or your loved one can use their free time as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. 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 communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are an assortment of benefits and costs to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your service plan: transportation, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, laundry, cable TV, meals, wellness program, and private phone. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include community activities, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, and healthcare center.
