Caring Accommodations

Having familiar items in your room can help you adjust to your new home. A bed and matching nightstand, dresser and armoire (closet) are provided. You may bring a favorite chair or small sofa, lamp, television, personal computer, plants, mementos, and art. Please ask for help hanging pictures.

For safety, rocking chairs and gliders are not allowed. Please do not bring rugs, ottomans or other items that may create a tripping hazard.


Each household has a laundry room with a washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. Laundry will be washed by household staff, but elders and family members also may use the laundry room.

Computer, telephone, and television

Your room has telephone and computer jacks, and cable television hookup. You should call the local telephone company or visit a wireless provider to begin service. There is no additional charge for computer use or cable television. You should label easily misplaced items such as TV remote controls, and cordless and cellular telephones. We will make labels for you.


Your bathroom has a walk-in-shower, bright lighting and a safety light above the toilet.

Energy-efficient features

Elders can regulate the temperature in their rooms. To maintain temperature and humidity, windows cannot be opened. But outside air continuously flows into the building for good air quality.
