Independent living is simply any housing arrangement designed for seniors aged 55 and over. Housing of this sort is friendlier to older adults, often being more compact with easier navigation and no maintenance or yard work. You will have the freedom and independence you are looking for with more "me" time to call your own. Moreover, your living area extends well beyond your apartment door to the many Residences at Chestnut Ridge community spaces.

Chestnut Ridge in Wallingford offers a maintenance-free and worry-free lifestyle while you enjoy the benefits of being in your own home. Our independent living community provides amenities and services that fit your wants and needs while allowing you to maintain autonomy in a comfortable, friendly environment. Enjoy your choice of floor plans that provide spectacular views of the surrounding area, which include beautiful Taylor Memorial Arboretum and Ridley Creek.

As an independent living resident, you will enjoy a rewarding lifestyle with plenty of opportunities for socializing and entertainment. Many of our residents enjoy activities in the nearby town of Media, a quick 10-minute drive to offerings like dining, dancing and yoga. You can also take advantage of our many activities and clubs, building friendships and socializing daily. Our exciting independent living programs keep seniors as busy and as involved as they choose to be.
