If you’re contemplating a move, or planning for a retirement in a place you already love, there are plenty of outstanding senior resources available in this culturally rich city. 

Things to Do

Aging Support 

Many seniors need a little extra help to enjoy retirement. These resources can help you make the most of yours: 

Financial and Legal Advice

Aging presents endless opportunities to grow and learn, but it also poses some financial and legal challenges. What will happen to your home once you are no longer living in it?

How Senior Living Can Help 

If living at home leaves you feeling increasingly isolated, you’re not alone. The realities of retirement sometimes don’t live up to the fantasy—especially if you have physical limitations, live far away from the people you love most, or no longer drive. The right senior living community can breathe new life into your retirement by offering tons of activities, all under one roof. The Vantage at Cityview offers luxury senior living, gourmet food, new friendships, and plenty to celebrate.
