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.
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.
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.

For older adults living on their own, a time often comes when they feel they are simply “treading water.” Life may have occasional social engagements, a certain daily rhythm, but it can often lack direction. This is when individuals often seek or wish for a different mode of living that gives life a greater sense of meaning again.
It’s no surprise that the majority of people over age 65 prefer to live at home. One of the key reasons is the perception that staying home is less expensive. With worries of outliving savings, many believe senior living communities are financially out of reach. What may surprise you, however, is that’s often not the case. Let’s take a look at the cost of senior living versus aging at home.
