Independent Living communities allow seniors who are generally able to care for themselves to live independently without having to maintain a house. They offer, under one contract, an independent living unit (apartment or condo), residential amenities, common grounds, a building for socializing and perhaps shared meals and planned social activities, housekeeping, and laundry service. This allows the senior to age in place in one community even if they need additional In-Home healthcare services with time.
The Independent Living facilities with which Therese Johnson and Senior Care of Sacramento work take pride in providing a sense of community and consider each resident a member of our family.
Assistance from outside home care agencies is allowed in many Independent Living communities. The same home health aid or service may be employed by several residents.
Larger Independent Living communities may offer residents a wearable a 24-hour emergency monitoring response pendant. Residents of smaller Independent Living facilities can opt for a 24-hour emergency monitoring response pendant provided by a third-party outside company.
