Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a harmony between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to consider when determining an independent living community.
