Sandy Springs, Georgia

Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of the property might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a good solution to this situation. Seniors can continue to live their lives as they desire while their meals are prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social 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 interests. 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 locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care professionals, they always have the option. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the care plan: internet access, transportation, initial assessment fee, wellness program, meals, utilities, Waiting list deposit, and private phone. The benefits that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, community activities, private rental hall, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, concierge services, and golf course.
