Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the maintenance of the property might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a convenient solution to this situation. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private care providers. There are a number of expenses and benefits to keep in mind when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your care plan: laundry, initial assessment fee, wellness program, field trips, housekeeping, cable TV, move-in fee, and transportation. The luxuries associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, transportation, healthcare center, concierge services, laundry service, and beauty salon & barber shop.
