When shopping for retirement living, you want it to feel like home. Luckily, the team at Lewis Memorial Christian Village is committed to helping older adults find the options and discover the freedom that independent living can bring with new renovations and updated finishes to their garden townhome villas.

About Independent Living

Independent living, sometimes called retirement living or 55+ living, offers perfectly sized maintenance-free living options designed with retirees in mind. Independent living comes in all shapes and sizes – from apartments to townhomes. At Lewis Memorial, our independent living program offers one- and two-bedroom townhome villas, full kitchens, private patios, campus amenities and more.

The Benefits

Why independent living? The freedom! For older adults whose homes are more work than benefit, independent living can be a great option. No-maintenance options means residents no longer worry about lawn care, home repairs or security. And in a 55+ community, your neighbors are in your season of life, an added social benefit of the lifestyle.

Need to leave for a few weeks to spend time with your grandkids? Your home will be fully looked after. Looking to build friendships? Friendly neighbors are mere steps away.

New Finishes at Lewis Memorial

As a faith-led, nonprofit organization, we’re committed to doing the right thing for those who call our community home. Instead of answering to shareholders, our profits are reinvested into our communities through new services, updated finishes and remodels.

At Lewis Memorial, we were pleased to completely update our independent living garden townhome villas this year with granite counter tops, top of the line cabinetry and new appliances in the kitchen. Bathrooms were renovated with walk-in showers and new counters, vanity and futures. We put down new plank flooring and added remote-control ceiling fans for convenience. And all areas were updated with contemporary colors that feel just like home.
