Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with an equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Daily needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live active lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each 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 locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: parking, internet access, move-in fee, utilities, meals, wellness program, cable TV, and private phone. The amenities associated with independent living include private rental hall, concierge services, game/TV room, transportation, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, and laundry service.
