Charleston, Illinois

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a great remedy. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are taken care of for you while you are able to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of benefits and expenses to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your care plan: wellness program, parking, meals, initial assessment fee, internet access, Waiting list deposit, utilities, and field trips. The conveniences associated with independent living include healthcare center, laundry service, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, security guards, game/TV room, and golf course.
