Independent Living

An Independent Living Community allows residents the choice to live their active lives while making sure their essential needs are fulfilled. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they choose, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically consisting 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 tasks out of the way. While policies vary between locations, many residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a variety of benefits and costs to consider while selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your plan: laundry, transportation, meals, wellness program, parking, internet access, Waiting list deposit, and utilities. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, private rental hall, community activities, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, game/TV room, healthcare center, and fitness center & swimming pool.
