Independent Living

For many seniors, the financial burden of home ownership and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid alternative. Basic chores such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with 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 locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent caregivers. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider while choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your plan: utilities, Waiting list deposit, parking, meals, field trips, housekeeping, wellness program, and initial assessment fee.
