Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are an assortment of advantages and costs to balance when determining an independent living community.
