“I love to wake up in the winter to the sound of someone shoveling our sidewalks,” said Mary Baxter, “they even clean the snow off our cars after every storm.”  There is no winter isolation for residents at New Horizons.  Instead there are three warm happy mealtimes together each day, and countless activities and other interaction with newfound friends.

Residents joining New Horizons now will revel in life without obligations, while their children, too, will experience relief and peace of mind.  And all newly arriving residents are guaranteed no increase in their regular monthly fees, including all accommodations, meals, utilities, etc. for a least five full years after their arrival.

Experience the satisfaction of moving out of that big home that you have always loved but no longer need on your own terms, and not because of a medical emergency.  Come visit New Horizons and learn why so many residents are proud to say, “New Horizons is Home.”
