Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of the property might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient solution. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of for you while you are able to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. 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 differ between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your plan: transportation, meals, internet access, parking, wellness program, field trips, laundry, and cable TV. The amenities that pertain to independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, transportation, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, and security guards.
