Paducah, Kentucky

Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a great alternative. Occupants can continue to live their lives as they see fit while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. 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 backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are an assortment of expenses and advantages to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the service plan: private phone, laundry, utilities, parking, initial assessment fee, cable TV, Waiting list deposit, and transportation. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include concierge services, transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, laundry service, private rental hall, and game/TV room.
