Wichita Falls, Texas

Independent Living

For those who desire to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the advantage of having their household chores taken care of by professionals, an Independent Living Community might be the perfect choice. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are accounted for, allowing occupants more opportunities to live active lives as they wish. 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. 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 communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are an assortment of advantages and expenses to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in your service plan: utilities, field trips, move-in fee, housekeeping, meals, private phone, internet access, and wellness program. The amenities that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, transportation, laundry service, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, healthcare center, and golf course.
