Independent Living

If you would like the peace of mind of having your chores managed while living at your own pace, you might want to consider independent living. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping duties are taken care of while you are unrestricted to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups 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 vary 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 costs and benefits to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: private phone, utilities, wellness program, laundry, meals, transportation, field trips, and parking. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, laundry service, transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, and security guards.

Demographics and Values

Out of the total city population, 51.6% are female and 48.4% are male. The median age of Rochester is 36 years old.
