Independent Living with Residential Care Services. Unlike other independent retirement communities, Hearthstone at Murrayhill is licensed by the state to provide caregiving services as needed to independent residents. This gives you the option to remain in your independent living apartment even if you have some short or long-term caregiving needs.
Assisted Living. Both Hearthstone locations offer a range of caregiving services for those who require assistance with activities of daily living such as medication management, shower assistance, dressing or toileting support, reminders, or escort services.

Hearthstone at Murrayhill has a dedicated memory care community called Anna’s Place, serving individuals whose memory loss (due to stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, or other forms of dementia) requires a higher level of support and a smaller, more secure, and less confusing living environment. Anna’s Place staff are specially trained and serve each resident with exceptional love, respect, and integrity. View memory care services and amenities at Hearthstone at Murrayhill.
