Residents who have met qualifications regarding their health and financial status may choose to live in an independent living apartment or home. Over 35 floor plans become available from time to time, including townhomes, cottages, villas, garden homes, and village homes. A “Priority List” deposit will allow prospects first choice with no obligation when their style preference becomes vacant. Services are available through private funding only.
Many pricing options are available for independent living. Some rental apartments are leased with a month-to-month rate. Other homes require a monthly maintenance fee and an entry fee which is partially refunded when the home is vacated.
