Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the peace of mind of having your chores handled while living the way you wish, consider an Independent Living Community. Occupants may continue to live their lives as they see fit while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. 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 backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and benefits to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: Waiting list deposit, move-in fee, internet access, cable TV, transportation, meals, wellness program, and private phone. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, security guards, healthcare center, transportation, concierge services, golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, and community activities.
