Mount Vernon, New York

Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but the financial burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to living an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a great remedy to this situation. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, allowing occupants more opportunities to live active lives as they desire. 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. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: private phone, utilities, meals, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, transportation, laundry, and wellness program. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, transportation, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, and healthcare center.
