What is Independent Senior Living?
Independent senior living communities offer maintenance-free living for those seeking a balance between independence and security. These "retirement" communities range in size - from large campuses to smaller enclaves of homes. Service packages also vary; While most include home maintenance - others provide dining, social activities, and some access to health care.
What is different about the Americare Cottages and other retirement communities?
Size. Instead of a large multi-building, multi-winged campus, our intimate enclaves of cottages and patio homes are nestled next to a sister assisted living facility. We offer privacy without isolation.
Can I bring my own furniture?
Absolutely. In fact these efficient homes are perfect for those looking to downsize but who have special items they just can't part with. Window treatments are included.
What about housekeeping and maintenance?
You leave that to us. We provide bi-weekly housekeeping with optional flat linen service. All repairs and maintenance - both inside and out - are taken care of.
I would feel more secure if I knew someone would check on me from time to time. Is that available?
That's part of Americare's independent living package. We know that for many seniors - just knowing someone is there when they need them - is all the security they need to live independently. We provide it with daily checks and 24-hour emergency voice response.
Is there an expensive buy-in required to live in the Cottages or Patio Homes?
No. Our leases run month to month. That way you stay in control of your money and can use it when and how you want to. Why pay for care now that you might need down the road? At Americare we believe independent living should also mean financial independence.
