Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might deter them from an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a good remedy to this situation. Occupants can use their free time as they wish while their meals are cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in your care plan: laundry, transportation, wellness program, initial assessment fee, field trips, utilities, parking, and cable TV. The benefits that pertain to independent living include concierge services, healthcare center, community activities, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, beauty salon & barber shop, and fitness center & swimming pool.
