Shrewsbury, New Jersey

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a good alternative. You or your loved one can use their free time as they see fit while their meals are cooked 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 the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with 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 an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionals. There are an assortment of benefits and costs to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in the care plan: meals, field trips, laundry, internet access, housekeeping, wellness program, move-in fee, and initial assessment fee. The amenities associated with independent living include security guards, private rental hall, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, and concierge services.

Cost of Living

The neighborhood where a facility is based might have a major effect on the price of care.
