      Acton, Massachusetts

      Independent Living

      For those who would like to live primarily without personal assistance but wish for the advantage of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect fit. Residents can use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational 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 interests. Residents’ quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent health care professionalls, they may always do so. There are a variety of advantages and costs to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the care plan: wellness program, internet access, move-in fee, field trips, housekeeping, meals, utilities, and private phone. The conveniences associated with independent living include security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, community activities, healthcare center, and game/TV room.
