Quincy, Illinois

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient solution to this situation. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits seniors 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, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private care providers. There are an assortment of expenses and advantages to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your plan: cable TV, transportation, field trips, internet access, housekeeping, wellness program, initial assessment fee, and laundry. The luxuries associated with independent living include concierge services, transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, golf course, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, and community activities.
