These are available in sizes ranging from 751 to 1281 square feet. Seniors may choose from several floor plans. Apartment homes include a full kitchen, with a freezer, stove, microwave, and more. There is plenty of storage, as well as a phone, Internet, and television connections. Window coverings are included, and seniors may bring their own furnishings, to give their new homes a personal touch. Residents also get fully-heated parking spaces and housekeeping services.. The community allows seniors to bring small pets.

*    A SAFE ENVIRONMENT: There are fire detectors in each apartment, and an emergency call system, among other safety features. Residents can also summon help 24 hours a day.

*    A CHOICE OF ARRANGEMENTS: When seniors move into one of the Elk Ridge Village Retirement Communities, they can select arrangements to fit their lifestyle, wants, and needs. Options include independent living, which offers residents the chance to enjoy a beautiful apartment, carefree living, a range of activities, and the security of nearby help.
