Barboursville, West Virginia

Independent Living

If you or your loved one desire the peace of mind of having many of your frequent tasks handled by professionals while living life the way you desire, consider independent living. You or your loved one can continue to use their free time as they wish while their food is prepared by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are taken care of by staff, and recreational activities are organized and scheduled. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and backgrounds. 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 choose.
