Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the chance to continue to live their active lives while assuring their basic needs have been met. Seniors may continue to use their free time as they see fit while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with 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 companion if they choose. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired.
