Independent Living

For seniors who wish to live primarily without personal care assistance but wish for the benefit of having their household chores maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community may be the perfect option. Occupants may use their free time as they see fit while their meals are prepared by a professionall chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are scheduled and organized. 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 backgrounds. Within the individual units, residents have access to their own private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they choose. While policies vary between communities, numerous residences allow pets as well. If residents decide they would like to utilize the services of independent medical professionalls, they always have the option.
