Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a harmony between an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with housekeeping. Basic needs such as meal planning and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and social activities is maintained, 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 ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, numerous residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with private care providers as desired. There are a number of costs and benefits to consider when selecting an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these amenities are included in your plan: transportation, Waiting list deposit, wellness program, move-in fee, cable TV, initial assessment fee, housekeeping, and laundry. The amenities that pertain to independent living include transportation, restaurant-style dining hall, laundry service, fitness center & swimming pool, community activities, healthcare center, beauty salon & barber shop, and concierge services.
