Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania

Independent Living

Many seniors may be physically and mentally able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home might be a deterrent to enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient solution to this situation. Food preparation, recreational activities and housekeepingare handled for you while you are unrestricted to use your time as you prefer. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences 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 locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private medical providers, they may always do so. There are a number of expenses and benefits to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are covered in the plan: meals, private phone, Waiting list deposit, cable TV, transportation, initial assessment fee, field trips, and housekeeping. The luxuries associated with independent living include security guards, healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, concierge services, transportation, laundry service, and fitness center & swimming pool.
