Independent Living

If you would like the convenience of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionalls while living the way you want, you might consider the option of an Independent Living Community. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, 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. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a number of benefits and costs to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your plan: utilities, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, move-in fee, wellness program, internet access, laundry, and transportation. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, community activities, healthcare center, laundry service, transportation, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, and fitness center & swimming pool.
