the phrase, "Worry less. Live more." At RLC, we love that approach to life.
We're committed to being a worry-free retirement community so our residents can
enjoy their retirement years to their fullest. An important part of that
worry-free promise is making sure everyone feels safe. Over the past year, safety
has taken on a whole new meaning.
We're proud of the way our communities have responded to the pandemic and

We have kept a
diligent eye on virus-related symptoms and testing in each of our communities. We

understanding the importance of staying socially engaged, we put measures in
place allowing friends and family to safely visit while staying properly
distanced with our residents and guests.

residents' health and happiness, and we would love for you to come and
