Independent Living

UMRC and its entire team work hard to ensure that seniors can choose the home, and lifestyle, that’s right for them. For many, this means independent living with maintenance-free amenities that enable them to ditch the lawn-mowing and snow-blowing so they have more time and energy to pursue activities that bring them happiness and fulfillment. And because circumstances change over time, UMRC families can change their homes to keep pace with their changing needs. At UMRC, our first priority is the comfort and independence of the people we serve – and we’ll move mountains to deliver on that commitment.
