Dripping Springs, Texas

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the ability to live an active life while guaranteeing their care requirements have been met. Frequent needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are accounted for, which permits residents more free time to live active lives as they desire. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and interests. Typically consisting of a private living area 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 pets as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and benefits to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are covered in the service plan: initial assessment fee, move-in fee, field trips, wellness program, utilities, internet access, cable TV, and housekeeping. The luxuries associated with independent living include golf course, beauty salon & barber shop, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, community activities, concierge services, and game/TV room.
