Independent Living

An Independent Living Community permits residents the opportunity to continue to live active lives while making sure their fundamental needs are being met. You or your loved one may continue to use their free time as they wish while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of a private living space with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to entertain guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies vary between locations, a number of residences allow pets as well. Nursing and health care services can always be arranged for with independent care providers as desired.
