Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the opportunity to live an active lifestyle while ensuring their essential needs have been fulfilled. Daily needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are taken care of, which provides seniors more opportunities to live life as they wish. 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 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 locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are an assortment of costs and advantages to consider while deciding on an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your service plan: move-in fee, meals, housekeeping, parking, initial assessment fee, transportation, Waiting list deposit, and wellness program. The luxuries that pertain to independent living include laundry service, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, game/TV room, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, concierge services, and golf course.
