What Is Independent Living?
Essentially, it is living just like everyone else – having opportunities to make decisions that affect one's life and the ability to pursue activities of one's own choosing. Here at The Haven, independent living is a "Life Style," and it's designed on an individual basis.
Independent living typically encourages socialization by provision of meals in a central dining area and scheduled social programs. Residents may choose to live a completely independent "Life Style" or choose to add additional services that are offered. Most meals and light housekeeping are provided.
Independent living is designed for those residents who do not need any assistance with the activities of the day such as bathing, dressing, grooming, walking assistance and transfer assistance. All of the apartments are unfurnished, and all bathrooms are handicap-accessible. Apartments come with full-size stoves, refrigerators and microwave ovens. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furnishings and accessories to decorate as they wish. Leases are on a month-to-month basis with no “buy-in" leases. Enjoy the peace of mind and security of a gated community with 24-hour video surveillance.
Remember: It's a "Life Style" of choices!

What our residents are saying about The Haven...
It's a safe feeling of knowing that there is help if we need it
My husband and I have been residents of The Haven for the past three years. It has been a wonderful experience, not only about the good care that is given to us, but also the pleasures of meeting such nice people, including the staff and caregivers. We have actually become like family to each other here and are assuredly able to reach out to each other. It's a safe feeling of knowing that there is help if we need it. We have also enjoyed the many activities that are available to help stimulate our minds and unify us as a family.

"...it is the place we refer to as "Home" now."
It is with great pleasure that my husband Ken and I write this letter in support of The Haven at Windermere. We have only lived here for two short years and while it is not like the home we had before, it is the place we refer to as "Home" now. The staff, employees and our NEW family (residents) are all friendly and very helpful. Our visiting family and friends are always impressed with the atmosphere here. If you are looking for independent or assisted living, we can honestly share with you that this is the place to call home.

"The activities, outings and entertainment keep me active; and the transportation helps to keep me independent..."
The Haven has been a wonderful place for me to call home. Before making the decision to move here I felt discouraged about how difficult my life was becoming and how isolated I was beginning to feel. Now I feel blessed because I am able to get the assistance that I need in this beautiful and safe place. I love the people who care for me, and I have wonderful friends here. The activities, outings and entertainment keep me active; and the transportation helps to keep me independent even though I no longer drive. My family and I enjoy the peace of knowing that my needs are being met at this time in my life.
