Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the maintenance of the property might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a solid solution to this situation. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your service plan: housekeeping, cable TV, parking, move-in fee, meals, Waiting list deposit, private phone, and field trips.
