Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the choice to live an active life while making sure their essential needs are fulfilled. Residents may continue to use their free time as they wish while their meals are 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, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of costs and advantages to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the plan: private phone, internet access, cable TV, parking, utilities, field trips, laundry, and Waiting list deposit. The luxuries associated with independent living include laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, transportation, and golf course.
