Life at McNamara

Life at McNamara House is comfortable, convenient – and as active as you’d like it to be.

It begins in your home – one of 80 modern, spacious studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Some are located within the converted St. Anthony’s parish convent, which also includes a fully-stocked library and a large community room. The building’s original architectural details – including beautiful stained-glass windows – have been preserved.

Other apartments – many with patios and balconies – are in a connected building. Surrounded by mature trees, ample green space, and lush, well-tended flower beds, the property also includes space for resident gardens.

“I never expected to have this quality of life as I grew older.”

– McNamara House Resident

All the amenities and conveniences are here: onsite laundry, off-street resident parking, extra storage, and 24-hour on-call emergency maintenance.

In this relaxing environment, McNamara House residents can enjoy the many pleasures of community living, including group activities, cultural celebrations, and more. The community ventures beyond the property, as well – with transportation provided to events, plays, cruises, and other recreational activities.

And while McNamara House is independent living, you’re never on your own. Our onsite staff is here to help make your life enjoyable, fulfilling, and worry-free.
