Complete guide to independent living

Chester, Maryland

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a nice equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about housekeeping. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ 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 balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the care plan: wellness program, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, cable TV, move-in fee, parking, private phone, and utilities. The luxuries associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, concierge services, transportation, game/TV room, community activities, and fitness center & swimming pool.
