With no buy-in, Kingsway Community offers seniors three independent living options, two of which with abundant amenities, and a variety of dining choices.  All come with peace of mind, knowing that residents have access to additional levels of care should their needs change over time. 


Kingsway Village and Parkland Garden Apartments each feature helpful services and amenities like housekeeping with linen service and transportation, as well as delicious dining options and a variety of apartment layouts to choose from.


At Kingsway Court Apartments, we feature one-bedroom apartments with limited options for those who prefer greater independence and fewer services to fit their lifestyle.
