Nazareth House Independent Living

Independent Living

Many seniors remain comfortable in managing their daily needs and routines. Our Independent Living units ensure residents have access to support if and when required. The environment provides a safe and tranquil space to relax and enjoy social engagement.  

Nazareth Care allows able-bodied residents to live independently, while still having access to nursing services and the benefits of a close community. Residents can enjoy companionship and care, while their families rest easy knowing that they are in good hands. 

Independent living is ideal for individuals who can still live independently without nursing staff’s assistance, but enjoy having access to assistance when needed. The independent living lifestyle offers residents a safe living environment and convenient access to dining, medical care, entertainment, and more.
