What is independent senior living and midcare/assisted living?

The Grand Constantia lifestyle allows you to have the time to focus on what’s important to you.

It could be being closer and spending more time with your family. Or meeting your neighbors and nurturing new friendships. Or perhaps it’s visiting the movies, playing bridge, shooting pool, volunteering to help improve your community or reading your favorite novels, again. Our retirement lifestyle leaves you in control, making the choices that are right for you.

And with all of the “little things” like grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and maintaining the house taken care of, you have the time and energy to focus on enjoying your retirement. That’s the way it should be. It’s a rewarding and satisfying lifestyle characterized by friendship, belonging and genuine understanding.

If you need some assistance with administration of medicine, bathing or dressing we have qualified staff available to assist you. Assisted living rates apply.

What does “chef-prepared meals” truly mean?

The Grand Constantia chefs use the freshest, highest quality ingredients in your food. We pride ourselves on our high standard of quality cooking, prepared from basic ingredients without pre-mixed or prepared foods.

We make our meals from scratch. This is your home, and you deserve home cooked meals.
