Overland Park, Kansas

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a great solution. Basic tasks such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent care providers. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the plan: housekeeping, wellness program, laundry, transportation, move-in fee, parking, field trips, and Waiting list deposit. The conveniences associated with independent living include transportation, laundry service, security guards, concierge services, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, and golf course.
