Independent Living

If you or your loved one would like the peace of mind of having your chores taken care of by professionals while living the way you desire, you might consider the option of independent living. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing seniors more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without 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 locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care providers, they always have the option. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the plan: parking, internet access, wellness program, meals, move-in fee, cable TV, transportation, and initial assessment fee. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, golf course, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, game/TV room, community activities, and concierge services.
