Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a nice balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the maintenance of basic tasks and responsibilities. Basic tasks such as meal planning 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 choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages 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 entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of advantages and expenses to balance while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the plan: internet access, utilities, wellness program, housekeeping, parking, private phone, laundry, and move-in fee. The conveniences associated with independent living include concierge services, laundry service, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, community activities, and healthcare center.
