Elkhart, Indiana

Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the convenience of having their household chores maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect option. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. 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 communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionals, they may always do so. There are a number of advantages and costs to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your care plan: parking, laundry, Waiting list deposit, transportation, wellness program, utilities, meals, and internet access. The luxuries associated with independent living include transportation, concierge services, security guards, community activities, healthcare center, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, and game/TV room.

Cost of Living

The overall cost of living can be a motivating factor when selecting which location is the best fit for you or your loved one. Elkhart has a median home value of about $86,577 and the median cost of rent is about $659 per month. The rent burden for Elkhart is about 17.0% of the average person's monthly income.
