What’s the difference between senior apartments and assisted living?

Sometimes called a 55+ community or age-restricted apartments, they both include many of the same assisted living community features, but not all. If you think assisted living is just a fancy term for nursing homes, we can’t wait to show you the difference. We are an active community that also serves your unique needs.
