Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the chance to continue to live an active life while making sure their essential needs are being met. Seniors may continue to use their free time as they see fit while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the 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 companion if they choose. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your plan: internet access, field trips, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, laundry, move-in fee, meals, and utilities. The amenities that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, golf course, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, transportation, healthcare center, and community activities.
