Topeka, Kansas

Independent Living

For many seniors, the burden of home ownership and the maintenance of the property might be a deterrent to living an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a solid remedy to this situation. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are an assortment of benefits and expenditures to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your care plan: move-in fee, cable TV, parking, laundry, field trips, Waiting list deposit, internet access, and utilities. The benefits that pertain to independent living include community activities, concierge services, golf course, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, healthcare center, laundry service, and private rental hall.

Cost of Living

The overall cost of living can be a big influence in determining what care choice fits best. Topeka has a median home value of around $100,074 and the median cost of rent is about $813 per month per month. The rent burden for Topeka is around 15.5% of the average person's monthly income.
