Complete guide to independent living

Joliet, Illinois

Independent Living

For those who would prefer to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect option. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping are taken care of for you while you are free to use your time as you desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are a number of costs and benefits to keep in mind while determining an independent living community.

The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, concierge services, golf course, game/TV room, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, and transportation.
