Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a nice balance between living an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are taken care of, which permits residents more free time to live life as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are a number of benefits and expenditures to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the care plan: initial assessment fee, transportation, move-in fee, field trips, utilities, internet access, wellness program, and cable TV. The luxuries associated with independent living include golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, private rental hall, laundry service, and concierge services.
