Service Sets Us Apart
Our community may be beautiful and well-maintained, but what truly sets us apart is a dedication to hospitality and service. Our community is your home, and you deserve to feel comfortable and attended to in a courteous, professional manner. To that end, we hire and train hospitality specialists who not only provide a great lifestyle, expert care and family atmosphere, but do so with an unfailing attention to service.
Let us help. We’d love to show you everything our community has to offer. Answer a few simple questions to help us understand what’s important to you so we can provide an experience tailor made to meet your needs.
When deciding on a senior living option, there are many things that contribute to the value you receive for your monthly rent. While there are tangible benefits such as a private apartment, three chef-prepared meals per day, transportation, daily engagement activities, 24-hour staffing & security and more, there are many less tangible but highly valuable aspects as well.
“One cannot think well,
love well, sleep well,
if one has not dined well.”
– Virginia Woolf
The famed American author’s words capture our culinary philosophy perfectly. We combine gourmet dining principles with variety, wellness and a true restaurant experience to put meal time in its rightful place at the center of a perfect day!
We have temporarily suspended communal dining due to the COVID-19 situation, and are offering residents dining in smaller groups to ensure proper distancing. It is our hope to resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
Our residents have enjoyed rich life experiences, and our community’s Engagement Program is as unique as the individuals who live here. Your days will be full of opportunities for continuing education, culture, physical wellness and fun.
