Complete guide to independent living

Shawnee, Kansas

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a good alternative. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are taken care of, allowing occupants more free time to live life as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area 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 vary between communities, numerous 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 benefits and expenses to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: field trips, meals, initial assessment fee, wellness program, private phone, housekeeping, parking, and cable TV. The benefits associated with independent living include security guards, private rental hall, community activities, transportation, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, and game/TV room.
