Creekside Landing is a unique campus of care that offers aging couples, seniors, and friends — whose individual care needs differ greatly — the ability to continue to live together in proximity. The campus provides a safe, supportive home and 24-hour nursing care for seniors who can no longer live independently, whether due to physical or cognitive issues.
We have expanded our Creekside Landing location in Vernon to include the newly constructed Osprey Court, opening in December 2023 and located just a hop, skip and jump (literally!) over Vernon Creek.
