Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a balance between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Basic tasks 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 choose, 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 ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to enlist the services of private medical providers, they always have the option.

It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your plan: field trips, utilities, private phone, laundry, internet access, cable TV, move-in fee, and meals. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, game/TV room, laundry service, private rental hall, healthcare center, and community activities.
