Franklin, North Carolina

Independent Living

For those who would wish to live primarily without assistance but wish for the convenience of having chores and housekeeping taken care of by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect option. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private medical providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the plan: housekeeping, initial assessment fee, utilities, meals, laundry, private phone, wellness program, and parking. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, transportation, private rental hall, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, and beauty salon & barber shop.
