For seniors with able bodies and minds who simply wish to fully enjoy the rewards of retirement, our well-appointed Independent Living apartment community offers resort-style services and amenities. Residents enjoy restaurant-style dining, housekeeping and laundry service, and outings to local attractions such as concerts, shops and cultural events.

This lifestyle option is for seniors who need a little help with mobility and daily tasks from trained caregivers while enjoying the convenience of pampering resort services and the privacy of their own apartment.
