Independent living with Episcopal SeniorLife Communities is a great option if you’re ready to downsize to an apartment or patio home, and want all the advantages of retirement community living that gives you more time to do what you want. At Episcopal SeniorLife Communities, we offer independent living apartments for seniors at five of our communities, plus patio homes available at Seabury Woods.
Moving into an independent living community means you can maintain your active lifestyle with convenient extras to make life more enjoyable. Of course, if your needs change and you decide it’s time for some extra help with your daily activities, all our residents have priority consideration to our assisted living communities, as well as to skilled nursing at The Episcopal Church Home.

So, for seniors who are still active, an independent living community can be an ideal setting because it offers a supportive, community-focused neighborhood where they can live on their own and meet new people, but also have access to some additional assistance when it’s needed. Many independent living communities, like ours at ESLC, also offer structured health and wellness programming with opportunities to learn, stay active and socialize and meet new friends.
