Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy to this situation. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionalls. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your care plan: utilities, internet access, meals, parking, wellness program, private phone, cable TV, and move-in fee. The luxuries associated with independent living include concierge services, laundry service, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, community activities, security guards, healthcare center, and fitness center & swimming pool.
