Independent Living

For seniors who would prefer to live primarily without assistance but wish for the convenience of having daily tasks and responsibilities handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, 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 ages and backgrounds. Residents’ quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your service plan: field trips, move-in fee, meals, Waiting list deposit, transportation, housekeeping, cable TV, and private phone. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include security guards, healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, concierge services, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, and private rental hall.
