Port Angeles, Washington

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but cost of owning a home and the maintenance of daily tasks and chores might deter them from an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities offer a great remedy. Basic chores such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents the autonomy to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups 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 communities, many residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of benefits and expenses to balance when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are included in the service plan: housekeeping, internet access, initial assessment fee, utilities, parking, field trips, transportation, and private phone. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include game/TV room, fitness center & swimming pool, golf course, community activities, healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, restaurant-style dining hall, and transportation.
