Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the chance to continue to live an independent lifestyle while ensuring their care requirements have been fulfilled. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy 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 age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and costs to balance when determining an independent living community.
