Complete guide to independent living

Auburn, Maine

Independent Living

If you would like the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores handled by professionalls while living the way you want, think about the option of independent living. Frequent needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, allowing residents more opportunities 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 backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in your plan: transportation, utilities, cable TV, move-in fee, field trips, parking, initial assessment fee, and meals.
