Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the convenience of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionals while living your life at your own pace, you might want to consider independent living. You or your loved one can live their lives as they wish while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. 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. 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, numerous 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 variety of advantages and costs to keep in mind when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your plan: Waiting list deposit, parking, cable TV, internet access, meals, initial assessment fee, utilities, and housekeeping. The conveniences associated with independent living include laundry service, healthcare center, restaurant-style dining hall, transportation, concierge services, security guards, fitness center & swimming pool, and community activities.
