Muscatine, Iowa

Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the upkeep of the property might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a good remedy to this situation. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be 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 differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionals. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your service plan: transportation, Waiting list deposit, private phone, initial assessment fee, laundry, wellness program, meals, and internet access. The conveniences associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, security guards, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, and laundry service.
