Types of Living

Senior Living

Senior living is a broad term used to encompass all types of care and communities available for those aged 55+. While broad, the care services we specialize in at Walker Methodist range across all specialities. Senior living communities include independent living, assisted living, care suites, memory care, and even transitional care. Every person has different visions of their future, and Walker Methodist likes to think that we can meet the needs and desires of every single one of our residents no matter what type of senior living is best.
