Richland, Washington

Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without assistance but would like the advantage of having their household chores handled by professionals, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect option. Basic tasks such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily responsibilities. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to be 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, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always utilize the services of private health care professionals. There are a variety of costs and advantages to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to determine if these services are included in the plan: initial assessment fee, transportation, field trips, meals, parking, Waiting list deposit, private phone, and wellness program. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include concierge services, healthcare center, game/TV room, security guards, community activities, private rental hall, beauty salon & barber shop, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living can be a motivating factor when deciding which care option meets the needs of your loved one. Monthly, the median cost for rent in Richland is about $1,104 and the median value for a house for Richland is around $226,208. The rent burden for Richland is around 14.2% of the average person's monthly income.
