Muskegon, Michigan

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the chance to live their active lives while ensuring their care requirements are being fulfilled. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by 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 vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and costs to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the care plan: laundry, utilities, transportation, meals, housekeeping, initial assessment fee, move-in fee, and internet access. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, laundry service, healthcare center, transportation, and golf course.

Demographics and Values

Muskegon has a population density of 1,040 people per square mile.
