Independent Living vs. Aging-in-Place

While aging-in-place may seem like the more affordable option, it’s important to take all your bills into account. If you choose to live at home, you’ll have to budget all your expenses separately. This includes bills such as property taxes, utilities, groceries, housekeeping, entertainment, transportation, and more. 

With an independent living community, you usually pay one monthly fee for all your dining, amenities, and more. Often this gives you greater value and peace of mind, as you can easily control your budget. In addition, you can enjoy amenities you wouldn’t otherwise have access to at home. This includes 24/7 health support, but also deluxe amenities such as a fitness center, entertainment room, transportation to local events and more. 

Independent Living Residential Options

You’ve got options when it comes to choosing your new home. At Fox Hill, we offer a variety of floor plans so you can pursue your ideal lifestyle and craft the spaces you wish. Choose between one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments, all with the option of adding a den space. 

All our floor plans are spacious and come with top amenities such as a fireplace, a modern kitchen, a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. We’re committed to ensuring you can transform your apartment into your personal space. Learn more about our floor plans and tours here.
