Independent Living

For those who would like to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having daily tasks and responsibilities taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Residents can live their lives as they desire while their food is prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to balance while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your care plan: initial assessment fee, transportation, field trips, utilities, wellness program, move-in fee, private phone, and meals. The conveniences associated with independent living include laundry service, concierge services, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, and game/TV room.
