A great place to call home! At Enlivant, we honor the commitments we make to our residents and their families. Our goal is to enhance our resident's quality of life by providing a warm, caring environment that fosters independence, dignity and choice of each resident.

Our residents are often seen relaxing by the fireplace or enjoying a beautiful sunny day in the courtyard with their neighbors. Each resident is encouraged to maintain their independence and we honor their personal choices.

Residents enjoy private, locking apartments that allow them to decorate just the way they want, with their own personal belongings. Residents and families are involved in making the decisions that affect their lives.

At our residence you'll find a high level of service with a personal caring touch. We invite you to come join us for a personal visit and experience the care and service we provide.

  • Gone but not forgotten

    My grandmother had 3 major hospitalizing falls while she was there, and 2 years in a row, in the winters of [date removed] this ended her up in a wheelchair both years with a broken pelvis twice (doctors xray proves) She went into the facility walking. The first one we realized she was being given some pain medicine she was not prescribed, which made her dizzy. The second fall set up pneumonia in her and took her on out. Its actually scary, the better insured a patient is.... because when there is an “accident” there (oopsie!) WALKER HOUSES PAYSCALE FOR THAT PATIENT/VICTIM GOES UP BY THOUSANDS! And when they actually did have to payback the extra month Grandma was paid-up through, after she died, they didn’t even get the money back to the beneficiary as they were told, but rather the temporary POA. But tisk tisk.... one should not expect such perfection from the greedy shakey hands That received it. In fact a day or two after my grandmother had passed away, I don’t know if the manager lady named [name removed] is losing it or if she’s on strong drugs or if she’s just acting like the people the residents, there but day or two after my grandmother had passed away, when i was cleaning my granmas apt out, i guess she didnt recognize me but I heard her muttering as she was walked down the hall about ”us people wanting a picture of our dead” loved one, us “kind of people” . No more flattery from her now, her palms are finished being greased.

  • I love it!

    I moved into Walker Place about 2 years ago. I was so unsure what I wanted to do. My family was not in agreement. At 96, I knew I could not stay at home. I had looked at several places and really felt like it was home when I came to Walker Place. In my 2 years, I can honestly say I never had a meal I did not like. The food was some of the best I have ever had. I'm not a picky eater, but I can tell you, I do like good food. The girls that take care of me every day are so kind and I always felt like I was the most important person to them, no matter how busy they are. I love my friends and my neighbors and when I think of what a good decision this was for me, I can't stop smiling. There is just a lot of Joy at my home, and I thank God daily for allowing me to live at such a special place. I hope you chose this as your next, forever more home and join me with this wonderful family. [name removed] This was transcribed by [name removed] just months before her passing. She will remain forever a joy in our hearts.

  • Lifes Choices. Walker Place...Best of Best!

    The landscape of life is unknown and full of uncertainty. "That's better than the alternative" you think. Maybe, but in time there will come days when you just need more. Hips break. Hearts fail. Memories blur. Partners leave before us. WE have decisions to make. What are we going to do with the rest of our lives? How do we want to live? I heard someone say, "Hey, a friend of yours is moving into Walker Place". We thought we had better check out all our options. We visited each place over a couple months and then we visited Walker Place and that was the last stop we made. We took a tour of Walker and at the end of the tour, we sat in the 1 bedroom suite to rest, and my wife piped up "We'll take it!" She had seen and heard enough to know this would be our final home. WE have been here for 6 months, and the decision was the RIGHT ONE. THe good things of life...happiness, purpose, contentment, companionship have been with us since day one at Walker. Good friends, food food, art, worth and warmth are here for us each day. Walker Place is comfortable, cheery, warm and pleasant. We (they) change with the seasons and go above and beyond for the people inside (and outside) the community. About the only thing that comes to us without effort is old age. We don't want to be young again, but to age peacefully. Good family life is never an accident but is always an achievement and abundant at Walker Place. You cannot escape life. Come over and live with us and enjoy each day. You won't regret it. I sure done! [name removed], Resident
