Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the opportunity to live an independent lifestyle while guaranteeing their essential needs are being fulfilled. Daily needs such as meal planning and the scheduling of social activities are taken care of, allowing residents more opportunities to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of benefits and expenses to balance while deciding on an independent living community.
