You Belong Here
New residents and visitors regularly comment on the warmth and friendliness they feel as soon as they step onto United Zion Retirement Community’s campus. Long-time community members smile knowingly and reply, “That’s just who we are! You’re welcome here.”
Jean, who enjoys a beautiful apartment with a patio that opens onto a tucked-away courtyard, remembers her early days living here after a move from out of state: “As I walked [around], everyone spoke to me, even strangers. I felt like I wasn’t a new somebody but an old friend. In a short time this helped me to feel like I really belonged.”
United Zion Retirement Community offers amenities and services you care about and make us more than the traditional retirement home. You can work out in the Wellness Center or take a walk around the campus. You can join the community chorus or Bible study group. You may want to craft or work on a puzzle in one of the many common spaces. Or maybe you will try your hand at a game of pool or shuffleboard. You’ll love resident-initiated socials and community-wide events. Every day, you can choose to connect with (and build) vibrant relationships with your friendly neighbors while enjoying independent living at United Zion.
Drawing from the rich United Zion Church heritage of the founding family, United Zion culture embodies Anabaptist values such as living out one’s faith in practical ways, choosing to be honest and caring genuinely. Whether or not faith is a key part of your identity, you are welcome to join in a Christian retirement community that recognizes each person as important. With daily chapel services and an active chaplaincy ministry, your faith can grow.About Us
