Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a great alternative. Seniors can continue to use their free time as they see fit while their meals are cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Typically comprised of a private living area 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 vary between locations, 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 costs and advantages to keep in mind when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in the plan: move-in fee, field trips, internet access, utilities, meals, laundry, initial assessment fee, and cable TV. The amenities that pertain to independent living include laundry service, concierge services, security guards, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, and community activities.
