Leadership In Orchards

Every employee or service provider at Orchards Assisted Living is driven by our commitment to provide experience you can trust. Meet our staff whose dedication and care make The Orchards Assisted Living home to so many.
Dear Friends and Community Members:

Welcome to The Orchards Assisted Living!

Welcome to The Orchards Assisted Living!

Maintaining independence as you age, or when a health condition occurs, is important to you; and it’s important to The Orchards Assisted Living, too.

Assisted living is often the right alternative for persons desiring to continue to live on their own, but need help with certain activities of daily living. Home services may help temporarily, but do not offer the security of an on-site staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, who can help at a moment’s notice when the need arises.

As a resident at The Orchards Assisted Living, your level of assistance will be designed to meet your individual needs. From meals to housekeeping to wellness visits from a nurse, you can continue your life with the security and comfort of the right support system.

You’ll take comfort in knowing that care services are available on site when you need them, and enjoy a range of amenities and activities when you need them.

I invite you to start with our Virtual Tour; and if you like what you see there, come in for a personal tour. We look forward to welcoming you to the active lifestyle you’ll enjoy at The Orchards Assisted Living!
