The Village – Independent & Assisted Living (Senior Apartments)

The Village at Cedar Hill offers personalized independent and assisted living options along  a continuum of care. Some of our independent residents came to Cedar Hill to enjoy an autonomous lifestyle, free of the responsibilities of home ownership. Others joined The Village neighborhood because they wanted or needed a little extra help with daily tasks from our friendly and trained nursing home staff. For those who may need some extra care, or help with arthritis or other chronic conditions, we offer massage, therapeutic services, and we have a dedicated exam room on-site for medical exams. When you choose The Village at Cedar Hill, you gain the security of having a skilled health care center and rehabilitation services right next door.

Life at The Village offer companionship when you want it, privacy when you need it, and an extra helping hand when you require it.
