Retirement should be more than chores and household responsibilities. The retirement living lifestyle is ideal for older adults looking to spend their time enjoying favorite interests, hobbies and passions and exploring new opportunities. A variety of services and amenities are included in monthly rent – housekeeping, maintenance (never change a lightbulb again,) meals, life-engagement and transportation.

Be Connected

Our communities are designed to help you focus your time and energy on what's really important to you. For many, it's being connected to others. You'll find it's easy to maintain and strengthen existing relationships with family and friends, while fostering new connections. Connections don't need to be in large groups.  Simply meeting a new friend, a quiet conversation or enjoying the afternoon matinee - simply by being you, you belong.

The wealth of available experiences and resources also encourages goal setting. Goals give something to work toward and the motivation to achieve something meaningful. We think you'll agree it brings a sense of joy and fulfillment in a way few other things do.

Be Inspired

People make a place. Being surrounded by other active adults looking to live a more carefree lifestyle creates an inspiring living environment. You'll find you have friends who encourage you to learn a new language or try yoga for the first time, or just sit and have a cup of coffee together. Residents discover new passions and explore ways to feel fulfilled that are meaningful to them. By being you, you belong.
