Why would I choose independent living if I can stay in my 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. If your family members worry about your safety living alone, they’ll gain valuable peace of mind knowing you live in a community with staff on site 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

How do I choose a senior living community?
How much will independent living cost?
The cost of independent living will vary depending on the community and the type of residence you choose. Contact the community you’re interested in for detailed information.
Can my grandchildren, family and friends visit?
Your guests are always welcome in your home, and they’re more than welcome to enjoy our common living areas, dining venues, amenities and activities with you while visiting. Some of our communities also offer guest rooms that can be reserved and rented for visiting family members and friends.
Are pets allowed?
Yes. They’re family, too! Many of our communities are pet-friendly and welcome dogs, cats, birds and fish upon approval through our Pet Admissions Program. Be sure to ask about the pet policy, approval process, and the pet-friendly areas of the community when you visit. All our communities accept service dogs and certified companion animals.
May I bring my car?
Many people do bring their cars, but with all the transportation options provided by our communities, a car isn’t a necessity. Many couples find they prefer one car instead of two, but that’s totally up to you.
