Cicero, Illinois

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a harmony between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the maintenance of basic tasks and chores. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, which provides residents more opportunities to live life as they desire. 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. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space 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 vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your care plan: initial assessment fee, wellness program, parking, field trips, utilities, move-in fee, private phone, and housekeeping. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include golf course, community activities, game/TV room, security guards, transportation, private rental hall, healthcare center, and concierge services.
