Independent Living

An Exceptional Community of Individuals

When visiting Branchlands Manor House, you may find residents sharing news of the day with neighbors, gathering in the elegant dining room for chef-prepared meals, or boarding the chauffeured bus for an outing. Liberated from day-to-day housekeeping, meal preparation, and property upkeep, they live their lives as they wish, confident that when help is needed, it is nearby. Their families also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their parents and grandparents are in caring, capable hands. When visitors come away from Branchlands, they comment on the community’s warmth and congeniality.

Step into a Branchlands apartment for a glimpse into the lives of some very special people. Some residents have traveled far and wide; others have focused on raising families; and still others have retired from busy careers. Even though most move to Branchlands after downsizing, they find ample opportunity to personalize their apartments with furnishings and cherished mementos from lives well lived.

We encourage you to experience our community first hand. Call for a tour—we will be pleased to introduce you to the Branchlands way of life.

Affordable. Homelike. Worry-free.

Branchlands Independent Living is the “total package” for those who seek a worry-free environment–no more home and yard maintenance, snow removal, or other routine maintenance and no more worry about unanticipated expenses. Electricity and water costs are included in the monthly rent. Residents may choose to prepare light meals and snacks in their kitchens, but the Manor House’s fine dining, included in the monthly rent, is a short walk from any apartment.

A move to Branchlands is a lifestyle move, not a real estate investment. Unlike many other senior living communities, Branchlands does not require the large upfront payment that may not be easily or fully refundable. Branchlands apartments are rental units requiring only a security deposit. Housekeeping and local transportation are included in the rent. This lower and predictable cost alternative affords both maximum flexibility and financial predictability.

Residents and Families Agree: Branchlands Is A Wonderful Place to Call Home

After looking at several places for my mom to transition from living on her own into independent living (and eventually beyond), Branchlands was an easy choice to make. Not only is it in a lovely, warm and welcoming setting, the staff who work there are beyond kind and gracious. They helped me with every step of the process and have been easily accessible when I have questions and concerns. I feel a true partnership with them.

The living spaces are clean and well appointed, the dining services are tasty, the activities are plentiful and appropriate, the residents are so sweet, but most of all, the feeling that my mom is in a place on the east coast where she is well taken care of while I live on the west coast is priceless. I highly recommend Branchlands to those of you who may be looking for the right spot for your family member. You will not be disappointed at Branchlands.
