Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient solution. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of costs and benefits to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community.
