Independent Living

If you or your loved one would like the peace of mind of having your housekeeping managed by professionalls while living life at your own pace, consider independent living. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping chores are handled while you are able to use your time as you desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and benefits to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your care plan: cable TV, private phone, parking, internet access, initial assessment fee, wellness program, housekeeping, and Waiting list deposit. The amenities associated with independent living include transportation, security guards, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, concierge services, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, and beauty salon & barber shop.
