Athens, Tennessee

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities offer seniors a convenient equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. You or your loved one may use their free time as they desire while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by 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 socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private health care professionals, they always have the option. There are a variety of costs and benefits to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: meals, cable TV, housekeeping, move-in fee, field trips, wellness program, transportation, and parking. The luxuries associated with independent living include healthcare center, golf course, transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, laundry service, private rental hall, restaurant-style dining hall, and game/TV room.
