Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the chance to live their active lives while assuring their basic needs are met. Occupants can continue to use their free time as they see fit while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences 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 differ between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionals. There are a variety of costs and benefits to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the service plan: Waiting list deposit, utilities, wellness program, private phone, internet access, housekeeping, parking, and move-in fee. The benefits that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, community activities, concierge services, healthcare center, and laundry service.
