Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the choice to live an active life while ensuring their basic needs have been fulfilled. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of expenses and advantages to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your care plan: initial assessment fee, utilities, Waiting list deposit, laundry, private phone, parking, cable TV, and wellness program.
