Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having daily tasks and responsibilities handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. You or your loved one can continue to use their free time as they see fit while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the 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 vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionalls, they always have the option. There are a number of advantages and expenses to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: laundry, private phone, wellness program, field trips, initial assessment fee, utilities, transportation, and internet access. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, security guards, golf course, laundry service, healthcare center, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, and community activities.
