Complete guide to independent living

Burlington, Massachusetts

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a handy equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about housekeeping. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, which provides seniors more free time to live their lives as they wish. 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. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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 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 expenditures and benefits to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your care plan: internet access, transportation, housekeeping, private phone, move-in fee, meals, cable TV, and parking. The benefits that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, security guards, concierge services, golf course, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, and beauty salon & barber shop.
