Independent Living

For many seniors, cost of owning a home and the upkeep of daily tasks and chores might deter them from living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a great solution. Seniors can use their free time as they desire while their meals are cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private care providers. There are an assortment of expenditures and benefits to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in the service plan: laundry, utilities, internet access, wellness program, cable TV, transportation, parking, and meals.
