Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a great remedy to this situation. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping chores are handled for you while you are free to use your time as you prefer. 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 interests. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the service plan: transportation, cable TV, field trips, parking, initial assessment fee, utilities, meals, and private phone.
