Studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans are available. The main meal each day, most utilities and flat linen laundry services are included in the monthly rental fee.
The community’s affordable assisted living apartments are designed for older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Certified nursing assistants are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Three meals a day, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.
“Residents of our community also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special programs,” says Krupp.
