Goshen, New York

Independent Living

If you would benefit from the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks taken care of by professionals while living your life at your own pace, think about the option of independent living. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space 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 vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of advantages and costs to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your service plan: parking, housekeeping, laundry, field trips, move-in fee, private phone, utilities, and internet access. The amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, private rental hall, game/TV room, security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, community activities, concierge services, and healthcare center.
