Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a convenient equilibrium between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the upkeep of basic tasks and chores. Daily needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are accounted for, allowing seniors 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 age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private care providers. There are a number of costs and advantages to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the care plan: move-in fee, laundry, wellness program, cable TV, transportation, housekeeping, private phone, and utilities. The conveniences associated with independent living include laundry service, golf course, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, transportation, security guards, and private rental hall.
