Independent Living Communities offer seniors a handy equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the maintenance of basic tasks and responsibilities. Basic tasks 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 choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers.
