Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the peace of mind of having your chores handled by professionalls while living the way you want, you might consider the option of independent living. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are unencumbered to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be 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 entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are an assortment of benefits and expenses to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your care plan: cable TV, housekeeping, utilities, Waiting list deposit, parking, private phone, meals, and wellness program. The benefits that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, private rental hall, laundry service, golf course, transportation, security guards, healthcare center, and community activities.
