Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a good remedy to this situation. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living area 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 more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are an assortment of expenditures and advantages to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your service plan: internet access, Waiting list deposit, parking, field trips, private phone, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, and wellness program. The luxuries associated with independent living include security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, concierge services, healthcare center, and community activities.
