Our community is truly a family, consisting of six seniors who live in private, furnished rooms with private bathrooms. This allows for a peaceful family environment. In our custom-built home, each senior has a private bedroom that is tastefully decorated and appointed with an adjustable bed, as well as a large bathroom with a roll-in “stepless” shower. We even have a walk-in whirlpool tub with a seat for those who enjoy a good therapeutic soak. The formal living room has a piano for sing-a-longs and cozy fireplace. Our dining room is intimate, where guests are encouraged to break bread with us. A beautiful, sun-drenched den is where the seniors congregate, do arts and crafts, puzzles, brain games, daily exercise and watch movies together, and more. We have an on-site hair salon, so our seniors can have their hair cut or styled right at home. We welcome anytime. This is your loved one’s home. You will have the freedom and access to visit anytime that you would like. We welcome you to come and enjoy a meal with your loved one.
