Prince Frederick, Maryland

Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient remedy to this situation. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing residents more free time to live active lives as they desire. 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 a private living space 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 locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and expenses to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the care plan: initial assessment fee, wellness program, housekeeping, cable TV, private phone, move-in fee, meals, and field trips. The benefits that pertain to independent living include security guards, concierge services, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, and golf course.
