Independent Living

What Is Independent Living?

Essentially, it is living just like everyone else – having opportunities to make decisions that affect one's life and the ability to pursue activities of one's own choosing. Here at The Haven, independent living is a "Life Style," and it's designed on an individual basis.

Independent living typically encourages socialization by provision of meals in a central dining area and scheduled social programs. Residents may choose to live a completely independent "Life Style" or choose to add additional services that are offered. Most meals and light housekeeping are provided.

Independent living is designed for those residents who do not need any assistance with the activities of the day such as bathing, dressing, grooming, walking assistance and transfer assistance. All of the apartments are unfurnished, and all bathrooms are handicap-accessible. Apartments come with full-size stoves, refrigerators and microwave ovens. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furnishings and accessories to decorate as they wish. Leases are on a month-to-month basis with no “buy-in" leases. Enjoy the peace of mind and security of a gated community with 24-hour video surveillance.

Remember: It's a "Life Style" of choices!
