Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the maintenance of the property might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a solid remedy. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, which provides seniors more opportunities to live active lives as they wish. 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. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the plan: field trips, private phone, transportation, initial assessment fee, parking, move-in fee, utilities, and meals. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, golf course, game/TV room, and security guards.
