At Independence Village, we design each of our communities to include everything you need for the best parts of your life.

 

Dining

Come For The Cooking. Stay For The Memories.

Our culinary experience is built around you, with our Executive Chefs creating menus based on your feedback and input. We’re proud of our daily menus and signature items, but we love trying to keep things fresh and inspired. Dining experiences at each of our communities include:
  • Partnerships with local community farms to provide the freshest ingredients available.
  • Food feedback forums each month to ensure we meet even the highest expectations.
  • Executive Chef or Sous Chef available in the dining room every evening.
  • Cooking demos every month where you can learn to replicate your favorite community dish. Executive Chefs will demonstrate a combination of your favorite meals and some exciting new dishes!
  • Menu reviews by certified dieticians for nutritional standards and dietary restrictions.
  • Daily rotating meals, including favorites and new expressions.

Aging Is Inevitable. Sitting Around Doesn’t Have To Be.

At Independence Village, our communities are a place for you and other residents to pursue your passions, day or night. Every month features a full calendar of activities designed to nourish the mind and body. If you’re looking to hit the town, you can enjoy shopping outings, art and culture experiences and trips to live events. Closer to home, you’ll find fitness programs, scenic walking trails and even happy hours! Whether you stay in or go out, there’s no better place to be than Independence Village.

 

Our Four Dimensions Of Life Enrichment

Social

Our social programs are fun and interesting opportunities to interact with each other. They can be happy hours, club meetings, group fitness activities and more!

Intellectual

Intellectual programs challenge and stimulate your mind. We encourage you to continue your quest for knowledge and achieve your learning goals with our Intellectual Programs.

Physical

We don't focus on what you cannot do, but rather what you can. We make modifications based on your abilities and mobility.

Spiritual

Our spiritual activities go beyond church services and Bible studies, including journaling, meditating and volunteering!

Residents and family members alike can always get involved in the fun. With activities calendars handed out each month, take a peek as just some of the exciting activities we feature each month.

Our Difference

A Place Where Everything Is Designed To Brighten Your Life.

Walking into Independence Village, the first thing you’ll notice is how welcoming it feels. Coupled with the energy of our residents, you’ll see what a lively and dynamic place it is to live. We’ve designed our communities as a place where seniors can live better than they could anywhere else.

Hear From Our Residents

We are so humbled by these kind words and honored to have the opportunity to serve our residents each day.

  • “There’s room to roam around. I can visit with people if I choose to or not. Always lots of activities to do if I care to do them, and being close to my family.”
    – Evelyn Fagley

  • “Everything is spotlessly clean. All staff is so friendly, willing to help if we have problems. The care staff gives kind and compassionate care.”
    – Harriet VanHouzen

  • “When you want to be alone, you can have your personal space and then when you want to talk to someone there is always someone. Also, the staff here is very helpful and nice.”

Food Truck

It’s More Than A Food Truck. It’s A Culinary Ambassador.

The Friendly Fork Food Truck was created to take the meals our residents enjoy each day beyond our dining room doors and into the world. By providing delicious food at fairs, festivals and other events, we are able to deepen our connection between with the surrounding communities bite after bite. We know a great meal can help develop memories and fuel friendships, and we’re willing to hit the road to prove it.

Employee Focused

We’ll Make You Feel Healthy, Happy And, If Necessary, Hugged.

Everyone who works at Independence Village has one job: to create meaningful connections with resident and their families. Our employees put residents first and are dedicated to keeping everyone genuinely happy. We take great care in finding the best employees to help our residents, and we’ll think you’ll notice how much of a difference that makes.

Does This Sound Like You? Apply Here

Here to Serve

100% Focused On You.

Our model is different. We’re the only ones in the industry who have created an environment where our Executive Directors can exclusively focus on residents’ and families’ wants and needs. They do not have any directly reports, they aren’t responsible for hiring employees, they never work on financials or any other administrative functions. They exclusively love and care for you. We’ve eliminated all other responsibilities so our Executive Directors can spend everyday making you feel safe, comfortable, happy and supported.
