What are the Benefits of Living Independently in A Senior Living Community

Senior living has changed significantly over the past few years.  Senior Living Communities encompass independent living, assisted living, memory care and some feature skilled nursing as well.  Most are beautiful and comfortable with homelike facilities, offering an all-inclusive luxury resort or cruise ship ambiance, amenities, and service.  At least that’s what you can expect at Franke Tobey Jones!

Residents living in independent living communities basically live active, totally autonomous lives but have the reassurance that assistance and even care is available if needed. Seniors who live independently in our community will have a place to call their own in one of our apartments or cottages. Most also drive their own cars, cook their own meals, participate in community activities and social events, and have as much privacy or independence as desired. Our independent community offers four areas on our beautiful 20 acre campus: our Duplex Cottages, Bristol View Apartments, Garden Apartments and Tobey Jones Building (that also has a dining room).  With all these options, you are sure to find something that suits your fancy.
