Dexter, Missouri

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a convenient balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to worry about chores. Meals, leisure activities and housekeepingare taken care of while you are able to use your time as you desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent health care professionals, they may always do so. There are a number of advantages and expenses to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the care plan: cable TV, wellness program, meals, Waiting list deposit, transportation, private phone, move-in fee, and laundry. The luxuries associated with independent living include community activities, game/TV room, transportation, laundry service, security guards, golf course, healthcare center, and fitness center & swimming pool.
