Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might deter them from an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a good remedy. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, allowing occupants more free time to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your service plan: cable TV, internet access, utilities, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, field trips, and wellness program. The amenities that pertain to independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, concierge services, transportation, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, and golf course.
