Complete guide to independent living

Grand Rapids, Michigan

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a convenient balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, allowing seniors more free time to live life as they desire. 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. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenses to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your plan: field trips, wellness program, meals, Waiting list deposit, internet access, transportation, housekeeping, and laundry. The amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, community activities, healthcare center, concierge services, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, and golf course.
