When Is It Time for Independent Living?

Most seniors want to remain in their home if possible because it’s familiar and comfortable. At some point, however, maintaining a home can cause more stress than comfort. This is especially true for those who live alone or no longer drive. Aside from companionship, another benefit of moving to a senior living apartment is access to transportation.

Independent residents have their choice of senior apartment styles, some with full kitchens. A unique benefit of living at Providence Place is that all meals are included in the monthly cost. This means seniors have their choice of nutritious and delicious entrees for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily prepared by a trained chef using local fare.

Independent Living vs. Assisted Living or Nursing Homes

The main difference between independent living and assisted living, skilled nursing, or other types of care is the amount of support offered. Independent living facilities provide help with home maintenance, chores, transportation and meals. They usually don’t offer assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and taking medications. They also don’t offer any skilled nursing or medical care.

At Providence Place, we have a unique aging in place model. This means that our residents can start out in independent living and then add on additional senior living services when needed, including assisted living and memory support or care.

The Cost of Independent Living

Since Providence Place is a rental community, it’s surprisingly affordable. Residents pay one monthly bill, so they can anticipate their living expenses from month to month and budget accordingly. Residents can enjoy freshly prepared meals at no extra charge. Additionally, moving to a Providence Place community will eliminate home maintenance costs.

When you add up the costs of your current living situation and compare them to independent living in Pennsylvania, you may find that community living is a better value. Speak to a Director of Sales for more information on costs.

Maximize your independence by moving to a Providence Place Senior Living Community. You can enhance your lifestyle by living among a community of friends. If you require more services at some point, Providence Place is prepared to provide it. And there is no need to move from your apartment. Assisted living and personal care services are offered throughout the community.
