Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Seniors can continue to use their free time as they desire while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. 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 choose. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to consider when choosing an independent living community.
