Complete guide to independent living


Ann Arbor, Michigan


Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of the property might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient remedy to this situation. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. 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 prefer. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and costs to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your plan: utilities, meals, cable TV, parking, wellness program, internet access, transportation, and private phone. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, security guards, private rental hall, healthcare center, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, and game/TV room.
