Lynden, Washington

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might deter them from an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a great alternative. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is maintained, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar age groups and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenditures and benefits to keep in mind when determining an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are covered in your service plan: internet access, utilities, move-in fee, parking, laundry, initial assessment fee, field trips, and cable TV. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include healthcare center, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, transportation, private rental hall, golf course, laundry service, and concierge services.
