Chatham, Illinois

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would like the peace of mind of having many of your frequent tasks taken care of by professionals while living at your own pace, you might want to consider an Independent Living Community. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled for you while you are free to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of expenses and benefits to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your plan: meals, internet access, field trips, transportation, utilities, cable TV, housekeeping, and initial assessment fee. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include laundry service, transportation, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, community activities, healthcare center, and golf course.
