While policies differ between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If medical or nursing care is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private caregivers. There are an assortment of costs and benefits to balance when determining an independent living community. It is important to determine if these amenities are included in your care plan: Waiting list deposit, meals, move-in fee, transportation, private phone, initial assessment fee, parking, and internet access.
