What is Assisted Living?

Assisted LivingFor residents that need a little more assistance, our staff is trained to help seniors with the daily tasks they need, including cooking, cleaning, dressing, grooming and medication management. But our goal is to allow you as much independence as possible to live a safe and healthy lifestyle.

We offer a unique approach to Assisted Living because we can create a custom care plan to fit your particular needs, so you are only paying for the services that you want. In order to help meet the needs of our seniors, we have strong relationships with many of the local physicians, hospitals and the skilled nursing facilities.

Amenities at Our Community

We are an intimate, single-story building designed and built to provide comfort, beauty and privacy. The interior of our community was specially designed for those with limited mobility, so you’ll be able to move about the building with ease. We offer private apartments in a variety of styles to fit your particular needs. Each apartment is equipped with lots of features to create maximum in-home comfort such as a walk-in shower, kitchenette, wall-to-wall carpeting, pet-friendly environment, and large, lighted closets.

We provide ample opportunities for socializing, dining and entertaining with other seniors or your own family members. We also work to ensure our residents have access to programs, outings and opportunities that allow them to engage physically, socially and with purpose. By getting to know each resident’s individual interests, we help seniors make meaningful contributions to each other and to the community, if they so desire.
