Hurricane, West Virginia

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities provide seniors with a balance between living an independent lifestyle and not having to concern themselves with the basic tasks of housekeeping and responsibilities. Daily needs such as the scheduling of social activities and housekeeping are accounted for, which provides seniors more free time to live their lives as they see fit. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy the opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. Typically comprised 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 chores out of the way. While policies vary between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to employ the services of independent medical professionals, they may always do so. There are a number of benefits and expenses to balance while determining an independent living community. It is important to learn if these amenities are covered in your care plan: internet access, cable TV, private phone, move-in fee, parking, Waiting list deposit, housekeeping, and meals. The benefits and amenities that pertain to independent living include private rental hall, game/TV room, restaurant-style dining hall, fitness center & swimming pool, transportation, golf course, laundry service, and community activities.
