Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the choice to live their active lives while assuring their care requirements are met. Seniors may continue to use their free time as they wish while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. 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. 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 prefer. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a number of benefits and costs to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community.
