Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores handled by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private medical professionalls, they may always do so. There are a number of advantages and expenses to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the service plan: cable TV, private phone, transportation, field trips, Waiting list deposit, meals, wellness program, and housekeeping. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, concierge services, community activities, golf course, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, transportation, and laundry service.
