Brainerd, Minnesota

Independent Living

For seniors who would wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the advantage of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect fit. Seniors may continue to use their free time as they desire while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of advantages and costs to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your plan: laundry, private phone, meals, Waiting list deposit, move-in fee, transportation, field trips, and housekeeping. The benefits that pertain to independent living include community activities, golf course, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, and game/TV room.
