Franklin, Indiana

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the ability to live an active lifestyle while guaranteeing their fundamental needs are met. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are free to use your time as you desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of advantages and expenses to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the service plan: initial assessment fee, Waiting list deposit, wellness program, laundry, cable TV, housekeeping, transportation, and move-in fee. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, laundry service, golf course, healthcare center, and private rental hall.
