Ashland, Virginia

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would benefit from the peace of mind of having housekeeping and chores taken care of by professionals while living your life at your own pace, you might consider the option of independent living. Residents can use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled 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, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of independent caregivers. There are a variety of costs and benefits to consider while determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in the service plan: move-in fee, utilities, laundry, field trips, cable TV, internet access, initial assessment fee, and wellness program. The benefits associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, private rental hall, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, security guards, transportation, and community activities.
