Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the upkeep of the property might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a great alternative. Meals, recreational activities and housekeepingare taken care of while you are able to use your time as you prefer. 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. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent caregivers. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the care plan: move-in fee, laundry, initial assessment fee, wellness program, cable TV, utilities, private phone, and meals. The benefits that pertain to independent living include security guards, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, golf course, concierge services, healthcare center, private rental hall, and transportation.
