Independent Living

For those who would like to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the assistance of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect choice. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live 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 communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of advantages and costs to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: parking, transportation, laundry, meals, utilities, wellness program, Waiting list deposit, and field trips. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, concierge services, laundry service, golf course, community activities, and transportation.
