Forest, Virginia

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community provides residents the ability to continue to live an independent lifestyle while ensuring their care requirements are being met. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and meal planning are taken care of, which provides residents more free time to live life as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically consisting of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer homes 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent health care professionals, they may always do so. There are a variety of advantages and expenses to consider when choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in your plan: field trips, internet access, wellness program, move-in fee, housekeeping, transportation, laundry, and cable TV. The conveniences that pertain to independent living include laundry service, concierge services, fitness center & swimming pool, beauty salon & barber shop, game/TV room, transportation, private rental hall, and golf course.
