Complete guide to independent living

Arlington, Virginia

Independent Living

For many seniors, the burden of home ownership and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might be a deterrent to living an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a solid solution. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they see fit, free from daily obligations.

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 prefer. While policies vary between communities, many residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent health care professionalls. There are an assortment of expenditures and advantages to consider while deciding on an independent living community.
