Independent Living

If you desire the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionalls while living at your own pace, consider independent living.

There are a number of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the service plan: utilities, field trips, cable TV, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, parking, internet access, and transportation.
