Do you want to enjoy everything retirement has to offer without the hassle of things like mowing the lawn, cooking every meal and cleaning the house?
As an independent living resident, you can let someone else handle the chores so you can do more of what you love. Maybe you want to spend more time on arts and crafts, learn how to play a musical instrument or attend morning yoga classes. Or you might want to join a book club, meet your friends for a resident social or go on excursions to local museums.
No matter how you want to spend your days, independent living gives you the chance to redefine what it means to be independent while enjoying an active lifestyle and pursuing your passions.

What Is Life Like at an Independent Living Community?
Every day at an independent living community is different.
Because you’re the one in charge of your time.
If you want to fill your day with energy and activity, you can sign up for physical fitness classes, compete in lively board game tournaments, go on excursions to local attractions, attend an educational workshop or join an on-campus club.
If you would rather enjoy a slow and leisurely day, you can savor a warm cup of coffee in your private apartment before meeting your friends for a delicious breakfast in the dining room. You can tend to your favorite plants in the garden, read a few chapters of the latest bestseller and get your hair done at the on-campus salon. And since most of our communities are pet-friendly, your favorite furry friend can tag along!
No matter how you choose to enjoy your retirement, independent living gives you the freedom to do more of the things you love. And because the staff tends to the household chores, you don’t have to waste another minute on things like cooking, cleaning and folding laundry.
