Independent Living

For seniors who would prefer to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the benefit of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Daily needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are accounted for, which provides residents more free time to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private caregivers. There are a variety of expenses and advantages to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the service plan: move-in fee, Waiting list deposit, private phone, housekeeping, laundry, parking, meals, and transportation. The amenities associated with independent living include golf course, transportation, laundry service, security guards, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, and concierge services.
