INDEPENDENT LIVING

 Specifically designed for independent seniors who are able to live on their own in an apartment or house, but who want the conveniences of living within a community that provides services and amenities such as housekeeping, social activities, outings and meals. Amenities often include a beauty/barber shop, fitness center, library, club meeting room and some transportation. This type of community fosters a great sense of community among residents.

55 + ACTIVE SENIOR APARTMENTS

Age restricted starting at 55 years of age. Independent living that offers a maintenance free apartment that includes access to a clubhouse, fitness center, common areas for parties and social gatherings. On-site management and concierge services.

ASSISTED LIVING

Provides a combination of housing, personalized support services and health care for those seniors who need assistance with the activities of daily living (ADL’s) but do not require advanced medical care.

RESIDENTIAL CARE

May also be referred to as Assisted Living but most often called “board and care” facilities. Usually single family homes licensed to provide assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and medications. They also provide for laundry, housekeeping, and other personal care needs.

ALZHEIMER’S/DEMENTIA

NURSING CENTERS
