Independent Living Apartments

The Highlands lifestyle centers on a carefree lifestyle with choices to fit personal preferences. Seniors living independently who desire the convenience of apartment living have the option of cooperative ownership or monthly rental independent living apartments.

“I love living in the Maine Lodge. It is the hub of The Highlands — most of the programs and special events are held here. Something is always going on, and someone is always around to have a cup of coffee with and a chat.” ~ Jane M.
