There was a time when a person would go from living in their home after they retired until it was time to go to assisted living or a nursing home. Times have changed. As people live longer and healthier lives, their needs change. Whether single or couples, even though they are healthy and independent, they may choose not to stay in their home for a variety of reasons:
- They want to have people around to better meet their social or emotional needs
- Their home may be too large or be more work than they can handle
- Their home may be too expensive to maintain
- They no longer want to deal with cooking, cleaning or maintenance tasks
- They may simply have a desire for a lifestyle change

The Card Home is a non-profit, residential home for independent retirees that has recently celebrated its 100th anniversary serving the Willimantic area. We provide a safe, healthy and happy environment for seniors who no longer choose to maintain their own individual home; we have both male and female residents. Offering 3 wonderful meals a day and a wide variety of activities – inside the home and out & about – it truly is the best of all worlds! This beautiful Victorian home offers a total of 20 lovely private rooms, each with either a half or full bath; residents may choose to have them furnished by us or to use their own furniture. The cost is minimal and the home and quality of life are beyond compare for our residents, who must be over 65 years of age. The size of our Victorian home offers a warm and intimate feeling that makes every resident feel special, and provides the closest similarity to a family setting available anywhere.
