Complete guide to independent living

Shorewood, Illinois

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy harmony between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about housekeeping. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled for you while you are able to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages 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 socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private medical providers, they may always do so. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your service plan: private phone, cable TV, transportation, field trips, parking, move-in fee, utilities, and meals. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include community activities, healthcare center, transportation, golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, and private rental hall.
