Live Each Day to the Fullest
You can engage in social, spiritual, and well-being activities that enrich your life. We have you covered! Join us to be active in a supportive retirement community, where residents cheer each other on to have the next adventure, or you need specialized care.
Continuing Care Options
Independent Living: Enjoy the best of both worlds in our Independent living community. Spend time with others engaged in an activity or read a book from cover to cover in the comfort of your residence – the choice is yours. At times, the gardens will beckon you outside, and we promise you will find it impossible to pass on all that Mother Nature has to offer on our campus. We offer a variety of affordable living styles to suite your needs. No entrance fee. Options include 24 apartments, 15 Village apartments, 1 cottage and 21 suites.
Long- and Short Term Skilled Care: In our Short-term Skilled Care residency, you may get help recovering from an injury, wound, accident, or other medical condition over a short period. Once healed, you will return home or to your community of loved ones. Respite care is a short-term option for families. If you join our Long-term Skilled Care residency, you will receive care for as long as needed. We offer all private rooms that overlook a view of our beautiful grounds. In addition, our low patient-to-staff ratios allow us to provide the best care.
There is always something to do with various activities to be active and social! Some programs our residents love include crafts, music, movies, readings, book reviews, games, outings, and seasonal celebrations.
Feel years younger when you take advance of the well-being features on campus. Benefit from our onsite physical, occupational, and speech therapy opportunities. Go for a swim in the therapeutic heated pool. Stay fit in the gym, join a yoga or exercise class, experience nature on our walking trails, and enjoy our ornamental rose garden. With all the options, you can do something different every day.
Worship and Serve
Nurture and grow in your faith by joining weekly worship services in the chapel, small group Bible studies, and more. Many of our residents have spent their lives serving a greater purpose and want to continue that calling, often becoming active in community service projects and social justice issues. You can also attend worship services off-campus at one of the many churches in our community.
Memories are made around the table with those we love. Our main dining room services as a popular spot to dine with friends and create lasting connections. With the beautiful view of our grounds, residents cherish meals together and have fun at themed events and celebrations.

Two Bedroom Village and Quad Apartments
The Village is located outside the back of our main Bethea Building and is comprised of duplex homes. Each home has its own entrance with an outdoor storage closet and patio. On the interior, there is a spacious living space and kitchen area. The master bedroom has its own bath with bath/shower combination. The other bathroom can be accessed from the hallway and has a shower only. Residents often use the other room as a guest room or office space. Each bedroom, kitchen, and the living space have windows. There is a washer/dryer access point in the hall closet which also includes a shelf. Each bedroom has closet space as well. A coat closet is located just inside the entry of the front door. Residents are invited to garden the space outside their homes if they are interested in doing so.
One Bedroom Suite (Bethea Building)
Located on the second floor of the main building, the suites include two large rooms that are connected by a small bathroom with shower and a kitchenette. The adjoining wall creates a separation thus giving it the feel of a suite. Due to the rooms’ size, residents often take part of their bedroom or part of the living space and create an office or craft area or include a small dining table. The bedroom has a large closet with ample storage. The kitchenette includes a refrigerator, microwave, and sink as well as a large pantry. Each room has its own heating and cooling unit and windows that slide open. Being on the second floor offers beautiful views of the mountains, tree line and grounds.
