Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the maintenance of basic tasks and responsibilities. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which provides residents more free time to live active lives as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care professionals, they may always do so. There are an assortment of expenses and advantages to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in the plan: utilities, wellness program, internet access, Waiting list deposit, private phone, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, and meals. The luxuries associated with independent living include community activities, golf course, concierge services, security guards, transportation, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, and fitness center & swimming pool.
