Rantoul, Illinois

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a nice balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about housekeeping. Basic tasks such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, free from daily responsibilities. 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. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are a number of benefits and costs to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the care plan: field trips, cable TV, private phone, housekeeping, wellness program, meals, laundry, and utilities. The luxuries associated with independent living include healthcare center, security guards, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, golf course, and private rental hall.
