Ask about any options a community could provide if your health needs changed in the future or if you would need to move to an assisted living community.
We are a licensed community at Bruceville Point, so we are able to conduct assessments for our residents’ needs and provide personal services. What makes us different? You won’t need to move as we provide these services discreetly in your apartment.

Ask about the community’s philosophy of helping their residents remain youthful, useful, spontaneous and mobile when you’re touring a community.
