Watertown, New York

Independent Living

For those who wish to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having their household chores maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Seniors may use their free time as they see fit while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to balance while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: meals, private phone, wellness program, cable TV, housekeeping, move-in fee, internet access, and laundry. The conveniences associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, concierge services, healthcare center, community activities, private rental hall, golf course, and laundry service.
