Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the chance to continue to live active lives while guaranteeing their basic needs are being met. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure 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 be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the care plan: initial assessment fee, cable TV, laundry, internet access, field trips, meals, Waiting list deposit, and wellness program. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, concierge services, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, and golf course.
