Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the ability to continue to live an independent lifestyle while making sure their care requirements have been fulfilled. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are taken care of, which permits occupants more free time to live life as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by 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 an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private caregivers. There are a number of benefits and expenses to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the plan: initial assessment fee, parking, field trips, move-in fee, housekeeping, meals, wellness program, and internet access. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, healthcare center, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, and golf course.
