When seniors reach the point where they need a little extra help with daily tasks, they sometimes wonder if they are ready for an assisted living community. Perhaps, the concern is costs, or the hassle of moving, or perhaps they associate assisted living with nursing homes. We know it can be a difficult, deeply personal decision, but we will say that an assisted living community is far from a nursing home. Our seniors maintain active social lives, and they set their own daily schedules. They live in private apartments but enjoy having a maintenance-free community and the little bit of extra help that comes with assisted living. We are here to support you while you live the way you want to live.
We offer beautiful one- and two-bedroom apartments.
At times, yes. To get on the wait list, you must submit a long-term application for residency.
We do offer small storage areas, or we can direct you to convenient storage units nearby. In addition, we can provide expert assistance in rightsizing. A move of this kind usually requires anticipating future needs and making some tough decisions about furnishings and possessions. We can help you in planning. We will work with you personally to ensure the choices you make are right for you and consistent with the way you want live.
