Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the convenience of having housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they see fit, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your care plan: transportation, wellness program, meals, utilities, cable TV, private phone, parking, and move-in fee. The amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, golf course, community activities, private rental hall, laundry service, and fitness center & swimming pool.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living is a motivating factor when choosing what community works for you or your loved one.
