Independent Living At Its Best

When it comes to finding the perfect balance of freedom and safety, independent living at Waterford Oaks is hard to beat. See what makes this type of senior living so attractive for many of our residents:

A Quiet, Private Facility

Our independent living facility has been thoughtfully designed and built to make life both peaceful and safe. You can enjoy having a space that’s all your own where you’re surrounded by your own things and possessions to help you find the rest, comfort, and privacy you need.
At the same time, there is everything you need to be healthy and well-cared for, right here under the same roof.

The Services You Need, When You Need Them

Receive the exact level of care you need, when you need it. Rather than waiting until a major incident occurs before you receive help, independent living provides trained, caring staff who are on site 24 hours a day and are ready to provide the assistance needed for happy, healthy living.

Enjoy Your Freedom and Family

Independent living means you decide how you live every minute of your life–whether that means going out to enjoy what the area has to offer, spending time visiting family and loved ones, or simply staying in and relaxing.

No matter what you choose, you have help at home to make sure you come back safe and who provide whatever assistance you need.

Attentive Caregivers Who Are Ready to Help

Whatever services you require, our helpful, friendly caregivers at Waterford Oaks are ready to provide it–whether that’s help with housekeeping, laundry, medications, etc.

And if matters turn more serious, our in-house physician or outside medical specialists are ready to provide the care you need.

Refreshing Activities From a Warm, Friendly Community

Just because you’re independent doesn’t mean you’ll be isolated. Rather, Waterford Oaks provides a friendly community and ample entertaining activities that will put a smile on your face while helping you stay connected with friends.

Movie nights, brain games, arts and crafts, and exercise classes are among the many activities that promote a healthy mind and a happy heart.

And if that’s not enough, there’s even more fun only a block away at the Waterford Senior Center on Pontiac Lake Rd. There you’ll find a wood shop, painting classes, poker, tai chi, senior yoga, and even more.

What Independent Living Truly Means

To clear up any confusion, we want to separate the facts from the myths to help you understand what independent living truly means.

Independent living is dangerous for seniors since no one is around to help during an emergency.

Independent living is safer than any other living arrangement. Our trained staff is available 24 hours a day, ready to help you whenever you need; all you need to do is pull a cord, and we’re on our way. We even make it safer for you when you leave, with someone checking in on you if you don’t return when you said you would.

Moving to our Waterford Oaks Senior Care facility means you’ll lose your freedom and independence.

We only add to your freedom and independence, not take away from it. We do this by providing a facility and services that are there to make your life easier so that you can do more of what’s important to you.

For example, independent living lets you live your life free from worry about having your personal needs met by providing you with the medications and practical assistance you require. We also take care of all of the maintenance and upkeep for your home, freeing you from a burden that many seniors struggle with.

Independent living is boring at Waterford Oaks. You’ll have to give up what you enjoy, and you won’t have fun anymore.

Waterford Oaks provides a wide variety of activities for you to enjoy, including exercise programs, live music, movie nights, arts and crafts, and more. With such a wide variety of different activities and social events taking place each week, you can enjoy as many fun, stimulating activities as you like. In fact, you might even get worn out if you’re not careful!

Many of our residents are surprised at how much more active and how many more friends they have here than before they moved in.

Find Out if Independent Living is Right for You

Waterford Oaks puts our residents first, providing the level of care they need to help them enjoy life to the fullest.

To help you know if independent living is right for you, we invite you to ask yourself these questions regarding your current living arrangements:

  1. How easy is it to get where you need to go?
    Going to the doctor, pharmacy, and grocery store, etc are all necessary parts of life. However, some start to feel like driving to all these places is too much to have to do on their own. Independent living can take care of all of this, providing you with everything you need while still being able to go and do what you enjoy, such as visiting family and friends.
  2. Is the care and upkeep of your home manageable?
    Some seniors enjoy managing a home as a way to keep active. However, others find it a growing burden as they struggle to keep it clean and maintain it. Our residents find it a relief when they move into our independent living facility, as they are free to do more of what they love without having to worry about household duties.
  3. How is your health?
    Whether it’s pain that comes from stiff joints or arthritis, or it’s the challenges that arise from a health condition that will worsen over time, some seniors worry about what might happen while caring for matters while living on their own. This includes caring for common, everyday activities such as bathing and eating. That’s why our residents find comfort from having the round-the-clock staff at our independent living facility. They are always there when you need them, freeing our residents from constant worry and allowing them to regain their daily joy.
  4. How often are you with friends and family?
    Many seniors have friends and family that are either too busy to regularly see them or live too far away. This can lead to feeling lonely, isolated, or depressed. Choosing independent living at Waterford Oaks is a great way to combat isolation and depression thanks to our many social activities, attractive community amenities, and shared spaces that allow our residents to make new friends and connect with one another throughout the day.
