Fairfax, Virginia

Independent Living

If you desire the convenience of having your chores handled while living the way you desire, think about the option of independent living. You or your loved one can continue to 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 scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by 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 without 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 differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers if desired. There are an assortment of advantages and expenses to balance while selecting an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in the plan: transportation, initial assessment fee, Waiting list deposit, cable TV, parking, wellness program, private phone, and laundry.
