Independent Living Communities create social, stress-free atmospheres designed to keep seniors active, healthy and safe.

CCRC A Continuing Care Retirement Community offers a tiered approach to the aging process. Healthy adults reside independently in single-family homes, apartments or condominiums. When assistance with everyday activities becomes necessary, they move into assisted living or nursing care facilities within the same community.
