Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a convenient harmony between living an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. You or your loved one can live their lives as they see fit while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. 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 vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent care providers. There are a variety of expenditures and advantages to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: initial assessment fee, utilities, parking, move-in fee, private phone, Waiting list deposit, laundry, and cable TV. The benefits associated with independent living include golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, community activities, and security guards.
