Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without personal assistance but wish for the benefit of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect fit. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionals. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your care plan: wellness program, meals, initial assessment fee, parking, internet access, move-in fee, cable TV, and laundry. The amenities associated with independent living include security guards, golf course, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, and beauty salon & barber shop.
