When there are many senior living options to choose from, we understand that it can get overwhelming while deciding which option is best suited for you. However, if you are relatively self-reliant and can take care of yourself without causing much worry, an independent living community is the option to go with. It is also perfect for people who are outgoing and enjoy an active social life filled with activities daily.
While some people may consider continuing to stay in their homes, it is actually a more budget-efficient way to live in an independent living community. In this article, we’ll provide a breakdown of expenses to show you the cost of independent living, and how it differs from owning a home.
When it comes to the cost of independent living, it depends on the location and what amenities are offered on-site. If the independent living community is situated in a prime city and provides a wide range of amenities, the price can be up to $6,000 a month. Of course, there are more affordable independent living communities that start from $1,500 a month, but they have less services and amenities. Regardless of whether you opt for a premium or budget-friendly option, you will receive adequate care, companionship, and security in an independent living community.
Household maintenance includes property taxes, mortgage, utility bills, and repairs and maintenance fees. These are all monthly expenses that are heavy financial burdens. If you are increasingly stressed or no longer wish to attend to these responsibilities, an independent living community is an answer. Here at The Welstone At Mission Crossing, all these expenses are included in one package, which means that you no longer have to concern with these housing expenses, and there are no hidden costs along the way.
What’s more, you will be in the good hands of our Impressions Housekeeping and Maintenance staff. From mowing the lawn to doing the laundry, our team of professional staff can manage all these day-to-day tasks to ensure that you can spend time enjoying the activities and amenities in the community. No worries, as these services come complimentary, alongside our Connections transportation, Sensations Dining, Expressions Concierge, Celebrations Activities and Events, and Dimensions Health and Fitness.
While staying in your own home, you pay for your own meals, transport, gym membership, social activities, and other lifestyle needs. However, at an independent living community, you are offered all these at no additional costs. You are more than welcome to whip up their own meals, but on the occasion that you do not want to cook, you are served nutritionist-planned meals at the communal dining area. Our events schedule is updated daily and features a wide variety of things to do, from exercise classes to games nights. If you have to travel to town, simply schedule a ride through our concierge staff. Everything is provided at your convenience.
