Shavano Park, Texas

Independent Living

If you would like the peace of mind of having your housekeeping taken care of by professionals while living at your own pace, you might want to consider independent living. Occupants can continue to live their lives as they wish while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living area and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes with many of the amenities of apartment life but without 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 tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired. There are a number of expenses and advantages to balance when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are included in your plan: cable TV, Waiting list deposit, parking, field trips, transportation, initial assessment fee, utilities, and internet access. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, healthcare center, golf course, game/TV room, transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, and private rental hall.
