Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a solid solution. Food preparation, recreational activities andhousekeeping are handled for you while you are able to use your time as you desire. 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 interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, 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 expenditures and benefits to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your service plan: Waiting list deposit, transportation, internet access, private phone, move-in fee, field trips, wellness program, and parking. The benefits associated with independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, healthcare center, community activities, concierge services, security guards, game/TV room, golf course, and beauty salon & barber shop.
