Independent Living

Our independent living offers individual, separate apartments to seniors in our Park Place Apartments. Residents can have a rental unit, and they can enjoy a carefree lifestyle with security and no burdens of house or yard maintenance. Our independent living apartments differ from typical senior apartments as they provide a congregate living environment. This means that Independent living residents have the opportunity to attend programs in the Park Place Apartments, and they also have full access to join the other ULC residents in social functions, cultural activities and religious services.

Park Place residents can take advantage of our 24-hour emergency call light system, social activities and wellness program. There are also several contracted services that residents have readily available if they ever need them.

What really sets our independent living environment apart from other senior living arrangements is the ability to age in place. Our independent living seniors have priority admission into ULC's other service residencies, if they qualify. This means they can transition into assisted living while staying in the same facility. Our independent living senior apartments offer residents the autonomy they desire, while providing an active social environment and health services available in the same facility.
