Compare Services of Assisted Living to Independent Living in CT

How Does Assisted Living Compare to Independent Living?

In choosing the Independent Living option at The Residence at Ferry Park, you will enjoy a spacious apartment chock-full of the amenities that you want, including the ability to take advantage of our gourmet dining program, a meticulously-maintained building, common areas for family gatherings, and a host of amenities, such as in-house laundry services.

You also live with the peace of mind of 24-hour security, and a range of daily living services that you can tap into should you have a temporary health issue or something that requires longer-term attention.

Assisted Living includes all of the above, but also assumes that you desire a more active degree of assistance day-to-day with certain daily tasks, like showering, dressing and managing medications.

The beauty and convenience of our community is that you can take life as it comes, remaining as independent as you like, while taking advantage of services as you decide to—all while staying right in your new home.
