Catered Living

Catered living is ideal for individuals who want to live independently, want flexibility and do not need assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, mobility and medication management. Flexibility includes choices for housekeeping, laundry and meals, the ability to remain active in the community and the peace of mind in know that help is available when needed. Catered living residents have a separate entrance and common space ideal for games, afternoon coffee or family gatherings. Residents are free to come and go as they please and may have visitors at any time.
