Crete, Illinois

Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having chores and housekeeping maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Occupants may continue to live their lives as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a number of costs and benefits to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your service plan: housekeeping, laundry, meals, cable TV, internet access, transportation, private phone, and Waiting list deposit. The benefits associated with independent living include game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, golf course, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, and concierge services.
