Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a solid alternative to this situation. Residents can continue to use their free time as they wish while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of costs and advantages to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the care plan: meals, internet access, private phone, wellness program, cable TV, parking, housekeeping, and laundry. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include concierge services, transportation, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, golf course, game/TV room, and restaurant-style dining hall.
