Marion, Iowa

Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the peace of mind of having many of your frequent tasks handled by professionalls while living at your own pace, consider an Independent Living Community. You or your loved one can continue to use their free time as they see fit while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are an assortment of costs and benefits to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the care plan: transportation, move-in fee, wellness program, laundry, utilities, field trips, parking, and meals. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, golf course, concierge services, healthcare center, game/TV room, and restaurant-style dining hall.
