What Does Independent Living at Chapel Hill Community Look Like?

Picture yourself reading a book in the afternoon sunlight or taking a walk on our beautiful campus. Older adults aged 55+ move to our community for many reasons. Some want to start fresh in a new space, while others enjoy living an active community life. Chapel Hill residents have the best of both worlds — a variety of living options and access to healthcare in a full-service Life Plan Community. Knowing that healthcare is available and easily accessible provides peace of mind and security for residents and their families.

Best of all, independent living at Chapel Hill means our staff handles the interior and exterior maintenance of your residence while you enjoy your retirement however you choose.

If healthcare needs change, Chapel Hill’s independent living residents can seamlessly transition to other on-site living options, including assisted living, memory care, Fast Track Rehab or long-term care.

What Type of Senior Accommodations Are Available at Chapel Hill?

Moving to an independent living community like Chapel Hill does not mean moving into a tiny space but rather moving into a living space that’s right-sized for this stage of your life. Chapel Hill offers spacious two-bedroom, two-bathroom cottages.
