Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect fit. Seniors may 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 recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences 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, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the service plan: utilities, internet access, field trips, meals, move-in fee, private phone, parking, and wellness program. The luxuries associated with independent living include community activities, golf course, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, game/TV room, and concierge services.
