Clinton, Wisconsin

Independent Living

Many seniors may be able to live without assistance, but the burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent lifestyle. Independent Living Communities provide a solid remedy to this situation. Occupants can use their free time as they wish while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar age groups and backgrounds. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering an opportunity to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical providers, they always have the option. There are a variety of advantages and expenditures to balance when choosing an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your plan: housekeeping, transportation, initial assessment fee, cable TV, laundry, wellness program, utilities, and meals.
