Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient solution to this situation. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area 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 there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between communities, numerous 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 advantages and expenditures to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the care plan: housekeeping, private phone, field trips, internet access, parking, move-in fee, utilities, and cable TV. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include community activities, transportation, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, healthcare center, game/TV room, and private rental hall.
