I would tell others that from the moment of first stepping in for a tour, I knew it would be home for my loved one. My loved one immediately sat down and said I'm home.

Moorhead, Minnesota

Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the assistance of having daily tasks and responsibilities handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, allowing occupants more opportunities to live their lives as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. 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 tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent care providers. There are a variety of advantages and costs to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the service plan: Waiting list deposit, internet access, move-in fee, transportation, laundry, initial assessment fee, cable TV, and meals. The benefits that pertain to independent living include community activities, security guards, laundry service, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, concierge services, and private rental hall.
