Edgewater, Maryland

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a harmony between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with 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 opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of advantages and expenses to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: Waiting list deposit, laundry, private phone, parking, initial assessment fee, move-in fee, field trips, and meals. The benefits that pertain to independent living include concierge services, golf course, private rental hall, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, and transportation.
