Washington, Illinois

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient alternative to this situation. Frequent needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live their lives as they 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 backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private caregivers. There are an assortment of benefits and expenses to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the service plan: cable TV, private phone, transportation, laundry, initial assessment fee, parking, meals, and wellness program. The amenities that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, concierge services, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, golf course, and healthcare center.
