Fairfield, New Jersey

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the opportunity to live an active lifestyle while assuring their care requirements are being met. You or your loved one can use their free time as they desire while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area 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 vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are an assortment of advantages and expenditures to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in the care plan: meals, field trips, private phone, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, cable TV, transportation, and parking. The conveniences associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, laundry service, and concierge services.
