Complete guide to independent living

Freeport, Illinois

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient remedy. You or your loved one may continue to use their free time as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space 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 differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a number of advantages and costs to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: cable TV, housekeeping, transportation, internet access, utilities, laundry, move-in fee, and private phone. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, golf course, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, concierge services, private rental hall, and game/TV room.
