Cary, Illinois

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about housekeeping. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits residents more opportunities to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of expenses and benefits to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your plan: transportation, meals, laundry, housekeeping, utilities, private phone, parking, and internet access. The benefits associated with independent living include transportation, concierge services, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, laundry service, private rental hall, and restaurant-style dining hall.
