Amory, Mississippi

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally capable of living without assistance, but cost of owning a home might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy to this situation. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages 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 entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of expenses and benefits to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your care plan: meals, utilities, internet access, cable TV, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, parking, and housekeeping. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include laundry service, transportation, healthcare center, golf course, private rental hall, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, and beauty salon & barber shop.

Cost of Living

Cost of living is a big influence in choosing which community works for you or your loved one. The rent burden for Amory is about 14.8% of the average person's monthly income. Monthly, the median rent in Amory is about $559 and the median value for a home for Amory is about $111,476.
