Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having chores and housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Residents may continue to live their lives as they wish while their food is prepared by a professionall 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 the opportunity to live 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 residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent health care providers, they always have the option. There are an assortment of costs and advantages to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your service plan: Waiting list deposit, wellness program, internet access, meals, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, laundry, and transportation. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include concierge services, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, golf course, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, and private rental hall.
