Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient solution. Food preparation, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are free to use your time as you choose. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised 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 there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent care providers. There are a number of costs and advantages to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in the care plan: private phone, housekeeping, internet access, wellness program, field trips, cable TV, initial assessment fee, and parking. The benefits that pertain to independent living include golf course, community activities, laundry service, game/TV room, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, and concierge services.
