Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership and the upkeep of the property might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a solid solution to this situation. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeeping duties are taken care of while you are free to use your time as you wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. 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 differ between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are an assortment of expenses and advantages to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the plan: parking, meals, transportation, private phone, housekeeping, move-in fee, wellness program, and field trips. The luxuries associated with independent living include golf course, healthcare center, community activities, concierge services, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, and laundry service.
