You'll enjoy three chef-prepared meals served daily, a variety of social, cultural and educational activities, housekeeping and linen services, 24-hour security and response systems.

We are also happy to assist you in arranging transportation for your personal outings, when you so desire. We are honored by more than 100 "Friends of The Inn" and and loyal volunteers who brighten life in countless ways – playing the piano, leading discussions on current events, assisting with gardening projects, helping as personal shoppers, and so much more. Short-Term Trial Residency We understand that moving is a big decision. That’s why we offer a three-month trial, as a convenient short-term residency option. Be our guest.
