So here’s the deal. We look at life as a partnership. To get the most out of life, you have responsibilities to yourself and to others. What you are capable of gets bigger, the broader your network. The scope of your life expands with the other lives you touch. Yes, DEFINITELY sometimes it’s work, sometimes it’s play – all of it is growth.
Rose Villa is about the power of community. We really do think the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Even more important, you never know exactly how it’s going to turn out! Life is exciting. And we are IN IT 100%.
Our partnership with you means you can customize the home you live in, use our large and varied number of gathering spaces to pursue your interests and passions, partake in any of the wide array of classes, seminars, performances, or workshops you like, simply spend time in your garden plot in our two-acre community garden, or hang out on our rooftop deck drinking coffee and reading….we’ve designed our community to support the life you want to live, whatever it may be.
And your partnership with us means we expect you to really bring it! An honest all-in attitude, a collaborative approach, genuine curiosity and respect. This is what makes our community something special. It makes it a place you will find true friends, colleagues, kindred spirits, and fellow daredevils.
Who wouldn’t want a full, rich, authentic life?

Research has shown that, for years, the name ‘Continuing Care Retirement Community’ has given people a misleading impression of what communities like Rose Villa are. While, as a community which offers a continuum of care and are certainly are proud of our healthcare services, we offer so much more, and being a Life Plan Community helps us communicate that.
We have large residential homes with full-size appliances and all the amenities found in new homes today. More importantly, we offer fitness and wellness programs, fine dining, creative enrichment programs, socializing opportunities, and much, much more. And of course, we still take care of all the home maintenance, housekeeping, yard work and snow shoveling!
People that move to communities like Rose Villa tend to be planners, people who like to know they’ve made the decisions they need to make to ensure they have a solid plan in place for their future. A Life Plan Community provides just what you need. It allows “planning” and “living” to merge. Having a plan in place—the security of the safety net provided by the availability of healthcare, coupled with the freedom from not having to manage all the day-to-day tasks that come with homeownership—allows for living life to the fullest.
This is an important decision. We encourage people to become fully educated about the various options that are available to them when searching for a Life Plan Community (aka Continuing Care Retirement Community).
