Yonkers, New York

Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the advantage of having housekeeping taken care of by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Occupants may use their free time as they wish while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of 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 age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but without 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, 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 number of benefits and expenses to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your service plan: utilities, internet access, move-in fee, initial assessment fee, field trips, parking, meals, and laundry. The benefits associated with independent living include security guards, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, private rental hall, concierge services, healthcare center, golf course, and game/TV room.
