Senior Apartments - One and Two bedroom apartments for seniors. Apartment residences must be able to live independently, prepare their own meals, maintain their own household and be in good cognitive & physical health prior to moving into Unitarian House. 

Retirement Residence - New residences should be in decent physical and cognitive health prior to moving in, and being able to manage their own daily routine and personal hygiene with minimal prompting. An intake interview is required for all new residences to ensure their needs can be met. As the resident ages and their needs change, arrangements will be made with the care team to move to a higher level of care at another facility if necessary.
