Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores handled while living your life at your own pace, consider an Independent Living Community. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. 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 differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionalls. There are a number of costs and benefits to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your service plan: field trips, utilities, private phone, meals, housekeeping, move-in fee, transportation, and laundry. The luxuries associated with independent living include game/TV room, transportation, private rental hall, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, security guards, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

Cost of living can be a motivating factor when determining what location meets the needs of your loved one. The rent burden for Florence is about 16.9% of the average monthly income. Florence has a median home value of $155,681 and the median cost of rent is around $945 per month per month.

Demographics and Values
