Enjoy Your New Life With Us...

As an Artegan managed community, we recognize that you are retired from work, not from life. We take care of the details of running a home and property so that you can get on with living life. Afterall, you have better things to do; invent, create, give back, learn, mentor, play, relax, and dream. Discover the opportunities waiting for you now that you have time to ask, “What’s Next?”  At Artegan, the answer is: Celebrating the Art of Life!

We are a private company owned and operated by families, for families, no layers of corporate folks between our residents and our owners. Whether your retirement includes Independent, Assisted Living, or Memory Care for a loved one, we are confident you will love our communities as much as we love serving you.


Not quite sure if this is the lifestyle for you? We invite you to come stay for a few days and try us on for size. Enjoy our food, meet new friends, and take part in some of our activities without moving in just yet. We would like to get to know you, and we believe you are going to like what you find. Ask about our Pampered Stay!
