Our warm and inviting community is always bustling with activity and opportunities to have some fun!
Fun & friends
The welcoming seniors in our community will be thrilled to have you join the fun. Meet up with our walking club for a stroll (or scoot!) around our quarter-mile path. If watching the latest blockbuster is more your style, meet in the common room for a film screening and popcorn. Social butterflies will enjoy catching up with a neighbor over coffee and a sweet in our dining room.
Safety & convenience
Our team is here to support you with everyday tasks so that you have more time to enjoy the activities you are passionate about. We offer housekeeping and laundry services as well as assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming. When you need to run an errand or visit the doctor, just schedule a courtesy transportation ride and we will drop you off!
We offer 24/7 staffing and emergency response systems in all apartments so that you can feel safe and sound.
Our community is a wonderful place to live. It is like one big family and the workers are all fantastic. My family really likes it too. I feel safe and secure here. Diane S.
