Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the choice to continue to live an independent lifestyle while making sure their care requirements have been fulfilled. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, which provides residents more free time to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical professionals, they may always do so. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: meals, utilities, Waiting list deposit, field trips, move-in fee, private phone, housekeeping, and cable TV. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, transportation, healthcare center, private rental hall, community activities, and restaurant-style dining hall.
