Rutland, Vermont

Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but the burden of home ownership might deter them from enjoying an otherwise independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy to this situation. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are accounted for, which permits occupants more free time to live active lives as they desire. 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 interests. Typically comprised of a private living area 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 more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of benefits and costs to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the care plan: wellness program, Waiting list deposit, utilities, housekeeping, private phone, parking, cable TV, and initial assessment fee. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, concierge services, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, security guards, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, and golf course.
