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. Traditions 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.


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.


Everyday Gourmet

“One cannot think well,
love well, sleep well,

if one has not dined well.” 

– Virginia Woolf

The famed author’s words capture our culinary philosophy perfectly. Our chef-driven restaurant combines 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!
