Knoxville, Tennessee

Independent Living

If you desire the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores handled by professionals while living the way you desire, consider an Independent Living Community. Frequent needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are taken care of, which provides residents more opportunities to live life as they wish. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space 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 vary between locations, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are an assortment of benefits and costs to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the care plan: cable TV, laundry, field trips, Waiting list deposit, utilities, transportation, initial assessment fee, and wellness program. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include golf course, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, community activities, and transportation.
