As a person grows older, they may become interested in finding a community that provides independent living for seniors and assisted living services. Yet not many people know what they will find at such places. What will such a community offer? Will you have a home of your own, or just an apartment for yourself? Will there be other amenities offered such as club centers and movie theaters? At Discovery Village At Stuart, we offer a number of resort-style amenities in our stylish senior living community.
What Is Offered at Independent Living Communities?
Every independent living community is different based on the services that are offered and what a guest desires. Some neighborhoods are a mix of townhomes, condominiums, and single-family homes. They may also offer resort-style living with clubhouses and centers located within a secure neighborhood. Sometimes the community will be operated much in the same way as an HOA with the lowest level of services provided.
Other communities provide apartments as part of their facilities with suites tailored for independent living for seniors. Team members are available to provide transportation, housekeeping, maintenance, and dining opportunities as an executive director will manage the center. These vibrant and caring centers will have different levels of amenities based upon the care that’s required by their residents. They may provide exclusive assisted living services, supervised independent living, or memory care to residents.
Selecting the Right Type of Community
Think about your personal preferences when it comes to communities that offer independent living for seniors. You want a location that offers active lifestyle services with the hobbies and clubs that will make living there enjoyable. Select a community that offers exclusive lifestyle programs, such as Discovery Village’s Celebrations Activities & Events that offer a Discovery Silver Cinema or a Bailey’s Bistro.
Many centers provide a swimming pool, library, and exercise center. These amenities allow residents to socialize with their neighbors, which is one reason many individuals choose to spend their retirement in a senior living community.
You should also consider the type of transportation services available. Are you looking for a community where you will drive yourself or call for an independent transportation company to take you on errands? Are you looking for concierge services where a team member will help you make arrangements for a day out on the town with exclusive transportation offered? Based on these level of services, you will be able to narrow down your choices on the type of independent living for seniors that will give you peace of mind.
Another important factor to consider is the level of personal care provided, which is tailored to each resident’s unique needs. While growing older, your medical needs may change. You may wish for a center that provides memory care or supervised independent living services. Some communities provide team members who are available when residents need assistance during their dining experiences. These neighborhoods may also provide CarePlus assisted living, which is enhanced daily personal care that is more in-depth and tailored to the resident.
Always keep in mind that independent living communities are typically not covered by insurance coverage or Medicaid/Medicare. Yet you may be eligible for low-income or government-subsidized housing. There may be certain housing restrictions if you are taking part in these income and housing assistance programs depending on your state.
