Complete guide to independent living

West Orange, New Jersey

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the opportunity to live their active lives while ensuring their care requirements have been fulfilled. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionalls. There are a variety of advantages and costs to keep in mind while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the service plan: cable TV, parking, housekeeping, utilities, initial assessment fee, private phone, Waiting list deposit, and move-in fee. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, transportation, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, healthcare center, and security guards.
