Peru, Indiana

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the chance to continue to live their active lives while making sure their care requirements have been fulfilled. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled for you while you are able to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical professionalls, they may always do so. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the plan: initial assessment fee, move-in fee, housekeeping, meals, parking, wellness program, Waiting list deposit, and internet access. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include private rental hall, game/TV room, security guards, transportation, golf course, healthcare center, concierge services, and community activities.

Cost of Living

Cost of living can be a major factor in choosing which location is the best fit for you or your loved one. The rent burden for Peru is about 16.3% of the average monthly income. Per month, the median cost of rent in Peru is about $584 per month and the median price of a home in Peru is about $59,522.
