Complete guide to independent living

Galesburg, Illinois

Independent Living

If you want the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks handled by professionalls while living the way you desire, think about the option of independent living. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. 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 interests. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care providers, they always have the option. There are a number of costs and benefits to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in the plan: cable TV, move-in fee, wellness program, housekeeping, meals, transportation, utilities, and private phone. The amenities associated with independent living include community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, golf course, and private rental hall.
