Independent Living Communities offer seniors an equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Basic chores such as meal planning 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 the opportunity to be 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 opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your care plan: parking, field trips, laundry, transportation, meals, utilities, Waiting list deposit, and cable TV. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include community activities, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, golf course, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, and restaurant-style dining hall.
