Columbia, Missouri

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the ability to live an active life while guaranteeing their care requirements have been met. Meals, leisure activities and housekeepingare taken care of for you while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private health care professionals, they always have the option. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the plan: private phone, meals, parking, transportation, initial assessment fee, internet access, utilities, and field trips. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, private rental hall, community activities, concierge services, healthcare center, and beauty salon & barber shop.
