Assisted Living - Cooper Place

Philosophy

The Society's philosophy of Assisted Living is to promote aging in place, tenant independence, dignity and self-direction. The services provided include meals, personal care, and social activities for the tenants. Cooper Place provides an environment that promotes and supports the independence of our tenants.
