Living options.

Maybe it’s the beautiful location in Amherst in a former apple orchard on Atkins Corner. Perhaps it’s the close proximity to great restaurants, culture and shopping. It could be the educational opportunities right here on campus.

You’ve Got a Friend.

There’s a lot to love about the independent lifestyle at Applewood. There are the stunning vistas and beautiful apartment homes. There’s our welcoming community of interesting and interested people. And there’s the maintenance-free living that gives you the opportunity to live a rich and rewarding life. 

We heard it again and again. When we asked our residents why they chose Applewood Independent Living—the answer was overwhelmingly ‘the people.’ Applewood attracts a vibrant community of residents from diverse backgrounds who like you, want an easier way to live. 

But an easy-going lifestyle doesn’t’ mean you turn off your brain. In fact, our residents are active, passionate, enlightened thinkers who take part in the Five College Learning in Retirement program. Residents open doors for collaborative learning with local colleges and museums. Many of these classes are often held right here at Applewood. This is just the beginning. 

Here you can continue to live life to the fullest secure in knowing that when and if the time comes that you need a bit of extra support, such as help with your medication, bathing or other assistance, we offer in-home care services. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered! 

If you’re ready to live life to the fullest and take the time to explore your interests—while you discover new ones, set your sites on Applewood Independent Living.
