Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a convenient harmony between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the basic tasks of housekeeping and responsibilities. Occupants may use their free time as they wish while their meals are 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 the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes 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 tasks out of the way. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of private health care professionals, they always have the option.
