Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the choice to continue to live their active lives while making sure their fundamental needs have been fulfilled. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are taken care of for you while you are unencumbered to use your time as you 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. 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 vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a variety of costs and advantages to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your care plan: wellness program, meals, utilities, field trips, initial assessment fee, private phone, move-in fee, and laundry. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include healthcare center, game/TV room, community activities, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, golf course, and fitness center & swimming pool.
