Complete guide to independent living

Vernon Hills, Illinois

Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the benefit of having chores and housekeeping maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Seniors can use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between locations, a number of 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 expenses to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your care plan: parking, initial assessment fee, private phone, internet access, laundry, move-in fee, Waiting list deposit, and transportation. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include game/TV room, concierge services, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, and transportation.
