What Is Aging in Place?

Aging in Place

Many seniors move into TLRC in their early, active retirement years. These seniors may reside independently in condo-style homes or the independent living apartments. TLRC offers support services to assist and support these seniors to live as independently, or age in place, as long as possible.

TLRC also offers assisted living apartments to support those who require more physical support, assistance with medications and personal care. Assisted living offers the same luxuries as the independent living apartments, but with enhanced care and compassion essential for this time of change.

Long-term care and short-term care housing and services complete the CCRC organization. These services provide nursing care for those who may require 24 hour/day care or rehabilitation after a medical crisis or injury or those who are at the later stages of life and require this type of continued support.

Offering multiple levels of senior housing and care enable seniors to enjoy their senior years, and age in place, within their own community, among lifelong friends.
