Complete guide to independent living

Burlington, North Carolina

Independent Living

If you or your loved one want the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks handled by professionalls while living the way you want, consider independent living. Seniors can live their lives as they desire while their food is 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 the 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 an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are an assortment of expenses and benefits to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the plan: initial assessment fee, cable TV, private phone, housekeeping, laundry, parking, field trips, and utilities. The amenities associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, concierge services, community activities, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, and private rental hall.
