Robinson, Illinois

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with an equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the maintenance of basic tasks and responsibilities. Residents may use their free time as they wish while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care providers, they may always do so. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the plan: internet access, utilities, laundry, private phone, wellness program, cable TV, move-in fee, and housekeeping. The amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, private rental hall, golf course, healthcare center, game/TV room, community activities, concierge services, and transportation.
