“It’s a wonderful senior center that provides all the living necessities for older people and still with full freedom available to them.” 
– Roland, Luther Park Community Independent Living resident.

Independent Living

Independent Living is similar to living in your own home, but offers a more maintenance-free lifestyle. Independent living is appropriate for senior adults who are still mostly self sufficient. We are happy to discuss if independent senior housing is right for you or your loved one!

Luther Park Community has two apartment buildings to choose from for independent living — Rose Glen and Luther Park Apartments. Both offer extensive lifestyle services to people age 62 and over. Residents have the opportunity to select from a wide array of recreational and social opportunities — they choose their level of activity or relaxation. Independent living provides comfort, convenience, and security to individuals who may be seeking a more maintenance-free lifestyle.
