Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a good remedy to this situation. Residents can continue to use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to consider when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the plan: transportation, utilities, Waiting list deposit, housekeeping, laundry, cable TV, parking, and initial assessment fee. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, security guards, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, and laundry service.
