Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a convenient harmony between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the upkeep of basic tasks and responsibilities. Seniors may live their lives as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational 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 area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in the plan: move-in fee, cable TV, field trips, parking, initial assessment fee, private phone, Waiting list deposit, and internet access. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include transportation, golf course, community activities, private rental hall, game/TV room, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, and healthcare center.
