Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a solid remedy. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, which provides seniors 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 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, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent care providers. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in your plan: parking, meals, transportation, private phone, cable TV, wellness program, internet access, and move-in fee. The amenities associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, community activities, concierge services, private rental hall, and laundry service.
