“What I like about Laurel Circle is I don’t have all the responsibilities that go with owning a house. I no longer have to worry about things going wrong and having to find someone to fix them. I don’t have to worry about getting the snow plowed or paying monthly bills. All those things are taken care of for me.”

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Life Plan Community?
A Life Plan Community, also called a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), is a retirement lifestyle that offers residents a wide variety of housing and health care options. As an independent living resident, you live in your own comfortable apartment home or villa. All maintenance, such as repairs and snow removal, is taken care of. Residents enjoy delicious chef-prepared meals in the community’s dining venues or can cook their own meals in their independent living residence. Should the need arise, residents have priority access to senior care and health services at The Arbor, including short-term rehabilitation and therapy services, assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing.
