Affordable, Spacious,
Maintenance-Free Living designed for your Lifestyle

As you sit there reading this and wonder what size of home or apartment would suit your lifestyle best, we know that you're also wondering if you could afford to live at one of our communities.

Our communities range from affordable housing apartments to world-class, sophisticated living for today's urban seniors. We offer a variety of living arrangements to meet everyone's desires.

Location, Location, Location
There is much in life to experience and enjoy. We want to ensure you have access to it all. The conveniences of living near libraries, theaters, shopping, medical offices, hospitals, post offices, museums, dining, parks, fishing holes, golf courses, cafes and much more.

Some people like the exciting city life and others prefer the relaxed atmosphere that living in the country provides. Which do you prefer? Franciscan Communities provides a little of everything, with residences in small rural communities as well as in large metropolitan locations, so that you can celebrate life the way you want, in the location you want.

Spacious Residences
Franciscan Sister
Imagine a spacious residence that accommodates your personal treasures, your active lifestyle and has been designed especially to fulfill your zest for living.

We've researched and listened to individuals like you to learn about your preferences when seeking maintenance-free living.

Our residences are offered in a variety of layouts and square footage so you can choose one that suits your lifestyle best. Many of our communities offer choices between roomy studios and spacious multi-bedroom apartments, as well as garden homes with complimentary options like patios, decks and dens.

When you step into most of our residences you are embraced by luxury and elegance and stunned by the quality of the cabinetry, the polished sophistication of the bathrooms and the overall innovation incorporated into the design. Your custom residence at our community is the ideal place to live your life to the fullest.

Looks are not deceiving at Franciscan Communities. Overload your senses with clean surroundings that make your residence and the community seem brand-new each day. Flat linen service, housekeeping services and maintenance-free living means that you won't have to worry about the tedious elements of housework.

Someone once said that God made rainy days so gardeners could get the housework done. It doesn't matter if it's raining or the sun is shining at Franciscan Communities. We're here everyday to make sure the look of your home is immaculate.

There are many security measures provided at Franciscan Communities that make you feel the most safe and secure:

  • 24-hour emergency call system
  • 24-hour security monitoring
  • Gated communities (locations vary)
  • Background checks and drug tests on associates
  • Design of the building (community feel, residences close to one another, etc...)
  • Lighted parking lots
  • Roving security patrols internally and externally
  • Fire alarms
  • Home security systems

Now that you've realized how safe and secure residents like yourself can be at a Franciscan community, isn't it time for you to invest in this new lifestyle?

Continuum of Care
As you age, you anticipate your care needs to change. We do too. We understand and that's why several of our communities are continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs). A CCRC is a community of housing and health services that offers a continuum of options to meet the evolving needs of seniors while allowing them the security of remaining in a familiar environment. At a CCRC, a resident can begin at one service level, perhaps independent living or assisted living, and move onto other levels of care based upon needs. All of these services are offered on the same campus. We believe this design allows us to regularly integrate new information and best practices into our programs and services to ultimately serve you better.

Doesn't it give you peace of mind knowing that you can move to different levels of care, based on what your health needs are over time, without leaving the comfort and familiarity of your living environment?
