      Waltham, Massachusetts

      Independent Living

      If you would benefit from the peace of mind of having many of your frequent tasks taken care of by professionalls while living the way you wish, consider independent living. Basic tasks such as meal preparation 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 wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between communities, many 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 variety of expenditures and advantages to consider while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your care plan: initial assessment fee, cable TV, internet access, meals, move-in fee, parking, field trips, and Waiting list deposit. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, laundry service, security guards, community activities, healthcare center, golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, and private rental hall.
