Residents at Charter House represent many walks of life. Even though you may arrive not knowing a soul, you will find people just like you who live full, active lives and represent a range of occupations.

Variety in all things is essential. Charter House includes an extensive library, programming that includes interesting speakers, computer courses, social events and musical performances. There are opportunities to develop new interests and skills with small and large groups, or to follow solitary pursuits.

But you don’t have to leave the building to access the services, shopping and pursuits that you need and enjoy. You can have your hair cut and styled, get your influenza vaccination, attend a church service, enjoy a wine and cheese party, or schedule a massage — all without leaving the premises.
