Essex Junction, Vermont

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a nice equilibrium between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with chores. Residents may use their free time as they see fit while their meals are prepared 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 the opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they choose. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionals. There are a number of expenses and benefits to keep in mind while determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in the plan: laundry, initial assessment fee, private phone, field trips, cable TV, move-in fee, utilities, and Waiting list deposit. The benefits that pertain to independent living include restaurant-style dining hall, game/TV room, golf course, concierge services, private rental hall, security guards, transportation, and community activities.
