Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the ability to continue to live an active lifestyle while making sure their care requirements have been met. Residents may use their free time as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professionall 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 an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the plan: housekeeping, internet access, cable TV, wellness program, private phone, laundry, initial assessment fee, and utilities. The benefits that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, security guards, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, and beauty salon & barber shop.
