Ephrata, Pennsylvania

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the opportunity to continue to live an active life while making sure their fundamental needs have been fulfilled. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they choose, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the care plan: initial assessment fee, parking, laundry, wellness program, field trips, private phone, utilities, and cable TV. The amenities associated with independent living include game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, laundry service, healthcare center, private rental hall, community activities, and golf course.
