Most senior living apartments offer spacious floor plans and modern amenities such as multiple dining options, fitness centers, libraries, swimming pools, and common areas perfect for socializing.

  • Does the community offer on-site medical care or access to health services?
  • Is there security on the premises?
  • Is the staff friendly and accommodating?

Take the time to tour each location and get a feel for the surrounding community.
