Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a convenient balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Occupants can continue to use their free time as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages 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 partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionalls. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your plan: field trips, housekeeping, utilities, meals, transportation, initial assessment fee, private phone, and wellness program. The benefits that pertain to independent living include security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, concierge services, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, healthcare center, and transportation.
