Choose Independence


Home is a place to make fond memories and surround ourselves with the things and people who bring us joy.  We may live there alone or with others.  Home can be in a house, an apartment, an assisted living center or other supervised setting.  Most importantly, home is where we feel safe and most comfortable.
