State College, Pennsylvania

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but the burden of home ownership and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient alternative. Frequent needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, allowing residents more opportunities to live their lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 without the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical providers, they may always do so. There are an assortment of costs and advantages to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your service plan: parking, cable TV, laundry, transportation, field trips, internet access, initial assessment fee, and utilities. The luxuries associated with independent living include game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, private rental hall, golf course, laundry service, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, and transportation.
