Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a convenient balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about the basic tasks of housekeeping and chores. Occupants may use their free time as they desire while their food is prepared by a professionall 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 the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well.
