Morehead, Kentucky

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the choice to live an active lifestyle while assuring their fundamental needs are being met. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live their lives as they wish. 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. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of 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 expenditures and advantages to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your service plan: wellness program, housekeeping, transportation, meals, internet access, laundry, Waiting list deposit, and initial assessment fee. The luxuries associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, security guards, laundry service, golf course, concierge services, community activities, and transportation.
