Fulfilling and enriching - independent living as it should be.

Independent Living Communities

All of us must age – yet we can choose to age successfully. We do that by making a proactive decision to surround ourselves with physical, spiritual, intellectual and social opportunities. We stay connected to the things and people we love. We continue to be active and engaged with others and the world around us.

That’s what independent living at an Ascension Living community is all about: choice. You choose to continue your active independent life. You choose to let go of the burden of home maintenance and chores. And you choose to live in an environment that keeps you fulfilled and enriched, with a host of services and amenities just outside your door, ready for you to enjoy whenever you like.  

Our independent living communities vary in the specific services and amenities they offer, but there are several you can expect to find in all of them.

Flat linen service
Scheduled transportation
Maintenance-free living, inside and outside your apartment

The better question is, why wouldn’t you? You have the privacy and comfort of your own residence – and so much more. You don’t have to worry about any home maintenance, inside or outside your residence: We take care of it all, from lawn upkeep and landscaping to leaky faucets and light bulb replacement. You have regularly scheduled housekeeping and flat linen service. You enjoy delicious meals we prepare (and we do the dishes!). You have activities and amenities – and fun, engaging neighbors – always just outside your door. You enjoy it all at your pace, and on your schedule. It’s a lifestyle without worries, and loaded with opportunities.

Your new independent living residence will be all yours! You can furnish and decorate it to suit your styles and tastes. Though they vary in square footage, every independent living floor plan comes with all interior and exterior maintenance provided, as well as regularly scheduled housekeeping and flat linen service. Every floor plan offers a kitchen with appliances, so if you’d like to make your own breakfast, heat up leftovers or entertain friends, you’ll have ample space. Every residence has individually controlled heating and air conditioning.

Not-for-profit communities – such as those owned and operated by Ascension Living – manage their financial resources in accordance with their mission. Long-standing values are reflected in governance and management. We aren’t driven by a profit motive to raise monthly fees, which means residents enjoy lower operating costs. And all our profits are reinvested into our communities. And our foundation can provide support to residents who outlive their financial resources.
