Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the ability to live active lives while assuring their fundamental needs have been fulfilled. Occupants may continue to live their lives as they wish while their meals are prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the 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 an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the care plan: field trips, parking, meals, internet access, move-in fee, laundry, cable TV, and Waiting list deposit. The conveniences associated with independent living include community activities, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, concierge services, and game/TV room.
