Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the chance to live their active lives while making sure their care requirements have been met. Seniors can use their free time as they wish while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent caregivers. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the service plan: initial assessment fee, parking, private phone, Waiting list deposit, wellness program, meals, internet access, and transportation.
