Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the opportunity to live active lives while making sure their essential needs are being met. Daily needs such as housekeeping and the scheduling of social activities are accounted for, allowing residents more opportunities to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are a variety of costs and advantages to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the service plan: utilities, field trips, initial assessment fee, parking, laundry, wellness program, move-in fee, and housekeeping. The benefits that pertain to independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, transportation, laundry service, community activities, and security guards.
