Ellensburg, Washington

Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the ability to continue to live active lives while assuring their care requirements have been met. Occupants may continue to use their free time as they see fit while their meals are cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of 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 age groups and backgrounds. Typically comprised of a private living area 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 chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private caregivers. There are a variety of expenditures and advantages to balance while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in your care plan: initial assessment fee, laundry, private phone, housekeeping, cable TV, transportation, internet access, and wellness program. The benefits that pertain to independent living include healthcare center, community activities, laundry service, transportation, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, private rental hall, and game/TV room.
