Grand Prairie, Texas

Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might deter them from living an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a convenient alternative. Residents can live their lives as they wish while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with 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 socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of independent health care professionals. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your plan: private phone, Waiting list deposit, laundry, parking, utilities, housekeeping, field trips, and cable TV. The luxuries associated with independent living include concierge services, beauty salon & barber shop, community activities, game/TV room, healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, and transportation.
