Independent Living

For seniors who would wish to live primarily without assistance but would like the convenience of having chores and housekeeping taken care of by professionals, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. 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 see fit, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of advantages and expenses to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your service plan: Waiting list deposit, wellness program, utilities, cable TV, parking, laundry, internet access, and move-in fee.
