Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the choice to continue to live their active lives while ensuring their fundamental needs are being fulfilled. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live 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 without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private care providers. There are a number of costs and benefits to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your plan: meals, housekeeping, utilities, parking, cable TV, internet access, laundry, and move-in fee. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, golf course, transportation, concierge services, community activities, private rental hall, and laundry service.
