Vernon, Texas

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would like the peace of mind of having your housekeeping managed while living your life at your own pace, you might consider the option of independent living. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are taken care of, allowing residents more opportunities to live life as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of private medical professionals, they may always do so. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your service plan: transportation, housekeeping, laundry, parking, wellness program, meals, utilities, and initial assessment fee. The luxuries associated with independent living include concierge services, private rental hall, game/TV room, security guards, community activities, healthcare center, transportation, and golf course.
