Lamar, Missouri

Independent Living

For those who would wish to live primarily without assistance but would like the assistance of having chores and housekeeping maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are taken care of, which permits occupants more opportunities to live their lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with 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 cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers. There are a number of costs and benefits to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your plan: utilities, initial assessment fee, meals, move-in fee, housekeeping, Waiting list deposit, transportation, and wellness program. The conveniences associated with independent living include security guards, private rental hall, healthcare center, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, game/TV room, and concierge services.
