Independent Living

For seniors who would wish to live primarily without assistance but wish for the assistance of having housekeeping maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Meals, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent health care professionals, they always have the option. There are a number of costs and benefits to balance when deciding on an independent living community.
