INDEPENDENT SENIORS IN THE APARTMENTS

Menno Place has several apartment buildings that are designed for seniors who are capable and independent. These seniors enjoy the company of others at a noon lunch meal that is included in the month-by-month lease. Many seniors living in The Apartments at Menno Place chose to move as a way to enjoy a supportive community of friends and staff.

Independent Living is a community housing model that combines homelike building features and private lockable living units with the basic support services and some socializing opportunities to enhance quality of life and enable seniors to live safely, comfortably, and independently for as long as possible. Pavilion, Terrace West and Primrose Gardens are Independent Living facilities.
