Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid alternative. Residents may live their lives as they wish while their meals are prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live 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 partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenditures and advantages to keep in mind when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the plan: housekeeping, internet access, laundry, private phone, parking, Waiting list deposit, initial assessment fee, and cable TV. The benefits associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, community activities, transportation, and laundry service.

Cost of Living

The overall cost of living is a major influence when determining which location is the best fit for your loved one's needs. Per month, the median rent in Kalamazoo is $823 per month and the median home value in Kalamazoo is around $98,503. The rent burden for Kalamazoo is about 16.8% of the average monthly income. In Kalamazoo, the cost-of-living index is 83.1 where a score of 100 is the average rating, and anything beneath 100 is cheaper than the national average. Kalamazoo has a grocery-price index of 90.7.

Regional Climate and Weather Information

Weather is a significant influence in determining which city is the best fit for you or your loved one. During the summer months, the air temperature in Kalamazoo is about 71F. The low summer temperature drops to approximately 58F during the month of June. The summer high rises to approximately 84F during the month of July.
