Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to living an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a great alternative. Seniors may continue to live their lives as they see fit while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private medical providers, they always have the option. There are a number of expenditures and advantages to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the service plan: transportation, cable TV, internet access, meals, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, wellness program, and field trips. The benefits associated with independent living include transportation, concierge services, community activities, healthcare center, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, security guards, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

The community where a senior care community is based will have a significant effect on the cost of care. The total cost of living can be a major influence when determining which care option meets the needs of you or your loved one. Sioux Falls has a median home value of around $168,307 and the median cost of rent is about $1,068 per month per month. The rent burden for Sioux Falls is about 16.5% of the average monthly income. Sioux Falls has a cost-of-groceries index of around 100.1 and a cost-of-living index of around 88.6.
