Complete guide to independent living

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 professionalls, 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 professionalls, 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.
