When Ardmore Village was established in 1984, a chief goal was to provide a variety of options for senior living. We think of senior years as another phase of life that can be just as full of meaning, joy, activity, community, and satisfaction as all the others. When seniors move into one of our four types of residences, they have often had to downsize to join our vital community of seniors. Some tips about downsizing are below.

We would love to welcome

Independent Living Options with a HUD Subsidy
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is an agency that administers Federal aid to subsidize rent payments for low-to-moderate income residents, including seniors. Ardmore Village has 92 high-quality HUD-subsidized one-bedroom cottages and 19 HUD-subsidized one-bedroom apartments. Various amenities are also provided that cater to the HUD-subsidized independent-living residents, including some that promote peace of mind. In addition, an emergency pull cord is in each of the bedrooms and bathrooms and when pulled produces an audible sound outside to alert neighbors of a possible fall. Lawn maintenance is provided, as well.
More Spacious Independent Living with No Subsidy
Independence is highly valued among seniors, but when a little extra assistance is needed, it’s wonderful to have the help of caring professionals, such as the staff at our assisting-living facility, The Lodge.
