Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without personal care assistance but would like the benefit of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. You or your loved one can use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care providers, they may always do so. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the service plan: wellness program, move-in fee, internet access, meals, housekeeping, cable TV, utilities, and Waiting list deposit. The conveniences associated with independent living include laundry service, transportation, golf course, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, and private rental hall.
