Are you ready to hang up your chef’s hat and turn off your vacuum cleaner for good?  Three superior meals a day and full housekeeping services await you in Independent Residential Apartments. And let’s think about how much space you really need or want.  You certainly don’t need to recreate all the spaces in your home if they already exist in the Community, such as a library or guest suite or private dining room. Select a studio or one- or two-bedroom apartment, and we know you will appreciate the comfort, convenience and safety of independent living at Friends Fellowship Community. Downsizing can be downright liberating!
