Marion, Kansas

Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option.

While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your care plan: parking, internet access, Waiting list deposit, laundry, meals, field trips, wellness program, and transportation. The conveniences associated with independent living include private rental hall, game/TV room, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, transportation, security guards, and community activities.

Cost of Living
