Bloomington, Illinois

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the chance to continue to live their active lives while guaranteeing their essential needs are being fulfilled. Basic tasks 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 wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionalls. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your plan: utilities, meals, cable TV, wellness program, laundry, private phone, field trips, and parking. The amenities associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, private rental hall, golf course, and healthcare center.
