Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the choice to continue to live an active lifestyle while ensuring their essential needs are being met. Seniors may use their free time as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of 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, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and costs to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your plan: transportation, internet access, Waiting list deposit, cable TV, housekeeping, move-in fee, private phone, and meals. The amenities associated with independent living include concierge services, game/TV room, private rental hall, security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, and laundry service.
