Independent Living

For seniors who desire to live primarily without personal assistance but would like the convenience of having daily tasks and responsibilities maintained by professionalls, an Independent Living Community could be the perfect choice. Meals, leisure activities and housekeeping responsibilities are handled while you are free to use your time as you choose.

Within the individual units, residents have access to a private living space and a full kitchen, and can even live with a companion if they prefer.
