Why Choose Crestwood Manor for Independent Living?

A group of friends gathers around a piano with drinks in hand.

The short answer to that question is that independent living at Crestwood Manor offers more. More opportunities to socialize with friends. More ways to improve your strength and fitness. More dining opportunities just a short stroll away. Crestwood Manor is one of Springpoint’s eight life plan communities. What does this mean? It means that you can enter Crestwood Manor through independent living, and if your needs change over time, you can ensure you will be supported with the right care. A life plan community eliminates the worry of what’s next and allows you to plan for the future. And, most importantly, provides you with peace of mind.


The only thing there’s less of? Cleaning, cooking, driving, and relying on other people.

Of course, if you want to cook a Sunday dinner from scratch you certainly can. That’s the beauty of Independent living at Crestwood Manor. You’ll have the resources to live the way you want to.

The best way to experience Crestwood Manor is to see it for yourself — and that can easily be arranged by scheduling a visit.

In the meantime, let’s take a look at exactly why independent living at Crestwood Manor is such a good fit for older adults seeking to actively enjoy life.

Making a Home

First, clear your mind of any preconceived notions of what you think independent living looks like.

Now, imagine a spacious two-bedroom apartment with two full bathrooms, two balconies, a full kitchen, a large living/dining room, washer and dryer, and four roomy closets. (There are certainly smaller options, as well, if you don’t want or need that much space.) At Crestwood Manor, you can create a home that suits your personal style, whether that’s modern, traditional, contemporary, or traditional. With many options, here are a few examples of personalized touches one can look forward to: herringbone accent tiles, quartz countertops, Shaker-style cabinetry, ceramic stone flooring, listello glass, and more.

All About the Dining

Part of living the good life, at least for most of us, is eating good food.

To some people, that means fresh and healthy options. To others, it means having the option to dine quickly and casually or to enjoy a leisurely meal with friends. Many look forward to a scrumptious Sunday brunch — complete with omelet station, freshly made waffles, treats and hors d’oeuvres. While others seek meals that are vegetarian, low sodium, or low sugar.

Crestwood Manor offers all of the above — and then some.

In our main dining room, you’ll find a wide variety of choices prepared by our skilled culinary team. Our bistro, meanwhile, offers light and nutritious snacks all day long.
