Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the convenience of having chores and housekeeping taken care of by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, which provides occupants more free time to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests.

The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care professionals, they always have the option. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your care plan: initial assessment fee, move-in fee, laundry, field trips, utilities, housekeeping, cable TV, and Waiting list deposit. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, community activities, healthcare center, game/TV room, private rental hall, and golf course.
