At Courtyard Gardens you live in your own apartment, with your own furniture and keepsakes, but without the burden of chores. You share meals, common areas, services and activities, much like being part of an extended family. Our resident bunny rabbit lives in the beautiful outdoor courtyard garden. We love pets and encourage you to bring yours.
We are a welcoming community for seniors where people care about you, where you are surrounded by the things that are important to you, where the people you love are always welcome, where you can do as you please, and control your own life, and where your physical needs and sense of belonging are met. Come live with Verve at Courtyard Gardens.
