Independent Living

For seniors who would like to live primarily without assistance but wish for the assistance of having housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect fit. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are able to use your time as you prefer. 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. Typically comprised of a private living space 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 there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent care providers. There are an assortment of advantages and costs to balance while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your care plan: transportation, internet access, laundry, private phone, initial assessment fee, parking, cable TV, and utilities. The benefits associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, game/TV room, transportation, laundry service, concierge services, golf course, and security guards.
