Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a convenient balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, allowing occupants more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages 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 tasks out of the way. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent health care providers, they always have the option. There are an assortment of advantages and costs to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your care plan: meals, parking, move-in fee, housekeeping, wellness program, laundry, cable TV, and utilities. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include community activities, game/TV room, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, golf course, concierge services, and laundry service.
