Nashua, Iowa

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the choice to live active lives while guaranteeing their care requirements are being fulfilled. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. 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 backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are an assortment of benefits and expenses to consider when deciding on an independent living community.
