Ludlow, Massachusetts

Independent Living

For those who would like to live primarily without assistance but wish for the advantage of having housekeeping handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live 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 an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care professionalls, they always have the option. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to consider while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the service plan: initial assessment fee, internet access, move-in fee, laundry, wellness program, transportation, parking, and meals. The amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, security guards, game/TV room, community activities, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, and beauty salon & barber shop.

Cost of Living
