Portsmouth, Virginia

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide individuals with a nice balance between an opportunity to live an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Residents may continue to live their lives as they desire while their food is cooked by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized.

Typically comprised of a private living area 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 there will be more time to spend with them with the basic maintenance of daily tasks out of the way. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionalls.
