Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a handy balance between living an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the upkeep of basic tasks and responsibilities. Daily needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are taken care of, which permits seniors more free time to live life as they see fit. 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. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical providers, they may always do so. There are a variety of costs and advantages to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: private phone, transportation, cable TV, utilities, parking, Waiting list deposit, field trips, and internet access. The amenities associated with independent living include golf course, transportation, security guards, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, and private rental hall.
