Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, which permits occupants more opportunities to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent health care providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of advantages and costs to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: cable TV, parking, transportation, move-in fee, internet access, field trips, laundry, and meals. The benefits that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, private rental hall, healthcare center, transportation, security guards, and game/TV room.
