Please see staff before bringing furniture or large items into the community, to ensure there are no safety issues or violations of fire codes.
Do you allow pets to visit?
We review this on an individual basis. Please speak with our staff should you wish to bring a pet in for visits. All animals will be required to have up-to-date shot records before coming into our community.
What assistance is provided in an assisted living community?
We provide help with activities of daily living or ADLs, which are bathing, dressing, toileting, ambulating and eating. Additionally, we provide help with medication management.
What if I need a higher level of care?
A resident’s doctor is responsible for designating the appropriate level of care. Our community will help the residents find appropriate placement if their doctor determines they need skilled nursing.
