Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having daily tasks and responsibilities handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Frequent needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, which permits occupants more free time to live active lives as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are a variety of advantages and expenditures to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your plan: initial assessment fee, cable TV, utilities, field trips, move-in fee, housekeeping, wellness program, and transportation. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, transportation, and fitness center & swimming pool.
