Independent Living

Independent living at Luther Park allows residents the opportunity to share recreational and social activities with other seniors.  Volunteering in the sundry shop, birthday celebrations, gardening, group outings and Bible study are a small sampling of the ways in which residents enjoy the feeling of community and purpose.
