Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the convenience of having your housekeeping managed by professionals while living at your own pace, think about the option of an Independent Living Community. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care professionals, they may always do so. There are a variety of benefits and costs to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your service plan: wellness program, housekeeping, utilities, transportation, internet access, parking, meals, and private phone.
