Elkins, West Virginia

Independent Living

Many seniors may be capable of living without assistance, but the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities provide a good alternative. Frequent needs such as housekeeping and meal planning are taken care of, which permits occupants more free time to live their lives as they desire. 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 interests. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a partner if they prefer. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing support is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are a number of advantages and expenditures to keep in mind while choosing an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are covered in your care plan: utilities, laundry, private phone, wellness program, housekeeping, Waiting list deposit, initial assessment fee, and transportation. The luxuries associated with independent living include private rental hall, fitness center & swimming pool, security guards, laundry service, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, concierge services, and transportation.
