We understand it’s a hard topic to discuss, however, it’s important for your loved one’s legal matters to be in order in case of an emergency. Be sure to speak about, organize and understand the following materials:
- Will & testament
- Living trusts
- Advance directives
- Power of attorney
Speaking to your parent or loved one about these sensitive materials is never easy, but we have tips on how to navigate a conversation. Reach out to a Independence Village community near you and one of our Community Specialists will help you through the process.
We know sometimes your loved one just wants to relax, and sometimes he or she may want to socialize or reignite a passion. Watching the game, playing cards, gardening, cooking, crocheting and everything in between, we tailor events and activities to touch each resident’s interests and hobbies. Take a look at some of the things happening at our communities.
Whether your loved one still enjoys cooking or would rather be served, or maybe a bit of both — We can accommodate. Our chefs are present every evening in the dining room and dietitians are available to ensure all dietary needs are met. We craft our own recipes and even recreate yours if you’d like! To ensure we are delivering meals you love, resident feedback is always welcomed and appreciated.
