East Providence, Rhode Island

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the opportunity to live an active life while guaranteeing their basic needs have been met. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, 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, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are a variety of costs and benefits to keep in mind while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the plan: private phone, move-in fee, utilities, Waiting list deposit, wellness program, cable TV, transportation, and initial assessment fee. The amenities associated with independent living include security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, and game/TV room.
