Embracing Elderhood: Planning for the Next Adventure

These days, many people are healthy and active into their 80s, 90s, and beyond. They are smart and wise about a lot of things including planning for their own future. As savvy realists, they recognize that as we age, it is important to be in a supportive community with other like-minded people.

Many independent seniors decide to join us at Garden Place because they want to enjoy the benefits of living in a social community. You’ll enjoy the opportunities of a social environment while staying independent of care as long as you like or are able. If or when you might need some assistance, you have a support system and care team at the ready that already know you, your preferences, and your personality—and you know them!

If you are entering elderhood as a vibrant, active person, Garden Place may be the place for you!
