Why would I choose independent living if I can stay in my current home instead?

Living alone in a house that was once full of family can be isolating and lonely. Independent living communities offer an array of opportunities to socialize, learn something new, enjoy cultural events and more. And when you choose an independent living community, you can leave chores like cooking, cleaning, home maintenance and lawn care behind.

In addition, if family members worry about your safety living in your current home, you’ll all gain valuable peace of mind knowing you’ve chosen a gated community with on-site health care team members and security personnel who are available 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

Can my grandchildren, family and friends visit?

Your guests are always welcome in your home and, while visiting, they are more than welcome to enjoy our recreational facilities, dining venues and other amenities with you. We also offer guest rooms that can be reserved and rented for visiting family members and friends.

Are pets allowed?

Yes. Pets are family, too! Our community is pet-friendly and welcomes dogs, cats, birds and fish. Be sure to ask about our pet policy, the approval process, and the pet-friendly areas of the community when you visit.
