Matteson, Illinois

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient remedy to this situation. Basic chores 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 see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical professionalls, they may always do so. There are a number of costs and advantages to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: utilities, wellness program, housekeeping, move-in fee, parking, private phone, field trips, and meals. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include concierge services, laundry service, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, private rental hall, golf course, and healthcare center.
