Urbana, Illinois

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the chance to continue to live an active life while assuring their essential needs have been met. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of for you while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups 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 vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenses to balance while deciding on an independent living community.
