Independent Living

If you would benefit from the peace of mind of having your chores managed while living the way you wish, think about the option of an Independent Living Community. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, which provides residents more opportunities to live active lives as they wish. 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 their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent care providers. There are a number of expenses and advantages to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: cable TV, field trips, transportation, Waiting list deposit, initial assessment fee, wellness program, move-in fee, and private phone. The amenities associated with independent living include golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, private rental hall, community activities, concierge services, laundry service, and security guards.
