Independent Living

If you or your loved one desire the peace of mind of having your housekeeping taken care of while living the way you desire, consider an Independent Living Community. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits seniors more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. 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 vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your service plan: parking, Waiting list deposit, cable TV, transportation, wellness program, move-in fee, field trips, and meals. The amenities associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, healthcare center, transportation, security guards, and concierge services.
