Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the upkeep of the property might deter them from an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a good remedy. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they see fit, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are an assortment of advantages and costs to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the plan: laundry, move-in fee, wellness program, utilities, private phone, transportation, cable TV, and meals. The luxuries associated with independent living include game/TV room, concierge services, community activities, security guards, transportation, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, and golf course.
