Each and every day is customized to meet the needs of that day, all the while encouraging our residents to remain as independent and individual as possible while also creating a community that allows for dynamic interactions and relationships.
    When you meet someone who needs assistance, you must first determine what kind of assistance is needed. You don't offer a tulip to someone fixing a car or a wrench to someone who needs an expression of encouragement, Assistance is a very personal thing and when companied with a desire to enhance someone's life, it moves beyond meeting a need-it creates a memory. While many receive similar services and amenities, they are fulfilled to accommodate each individual's personal preferences.
