Independent Living

For those who would wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the convenience of having daily tasks and responsibilities handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Frequent needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, which provides residents more free time to live their lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are a number of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in the service plan: transportation, field trips, private phone, utilities, Waiting list deposit, initial assessment fee, internet access, and housekeeping. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, laundry service, concierge services, and private rental hall.
