Carefree, Maintenance-Free Lifestyle

In our Independent Living Apartment Homes and Carriage Homes, residents enjoy a life free of maintenance duties. Instead of mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, or cleaning the gutters, our residents live life to the fullest—leaving the chores to us. Activities, social events, and outings fill the community calendar, so residents are never bored. From educational opportunities and exercise classes to hobby groups and games, there’s always something to do. And free from responsibilities around the house, there’s more time to do it!

Say hello to independent living in one of our residences—each featuring a spacious kitchen with full-sized appliances and a laundry room with washer and dryer included, plus an attached garage and charming deck.
