Wayland, Massachusetts

Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without personal assistance but wish for the convenience of having their household chores taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect fit. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits occupants more free time to live active lives as they see fit. 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 backgrounds. 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 vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and costs to consider when choosing an independent living community.
