“That’s what is different about Covenant Village. No one is waiting for the end to arrive. No one lives in isolation. There is choice and freedom to be as involved and active as you choose to be.”

Sarah Wentz wondered about moving to Covenant Village early. At the time, she was 68, and her husband, David, was 72. They are confident they made the right move at the right time. As she and David pursue active lifestyles, she counsels others to make a move as soon as possible. They frequently socialize with their cottage cul-de-sac neighbors, serve on committees, and remain active in the church. Both are regulars at the Wellness Center, and David never misses an opportunity to golf.

After caring for their aging parents, Glenda and Rick Gaddis wanted a different experience for their children. Life at Covenant Village frees them from worry and enables them to enjoy their children and be present for family, including caring for their young grandson, Nolan, who feels right at home laughing and playing on campus.

When the time is right, schedule a tour of Covenant Village and invite your family to meet our team members and hear first-hand anecdotes from our current residents.

Covenant Village is an accredited Life Plan Community, also known as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), which offers a full range of health services for active senior adults. As part of our continuum of care, we offer independent residential living choices and the assurance of future quality health services, if needed. Experts in the senior living industry overwhelmingly agree that a Life Plan Community such as Covenant Village provides financial security, value, and peace of mind for residents and their families.

Covenant Village’s governance and operations allow our community to remain financially sound and meet its long-term commitments to residents. For four decades, our leadership has led strategically, intentionally, and conservatively, balancing the needs of the present with the promise of the future.

Offering Life Care allows us to help preserve your finances with a plan for your future care. Life Care is the contract that you sign at the time of admission to an apartment or cottage, and it provides for your needs for the rest of your life.

The most common reason they give is to become part of a welcoming and caring community. New residents find that it is only a matter of days before their neighbors greet them on a first-name basis and extend social invitations to meet for lunch or join a weekly card game.

Here are just a few more reasons why Covenant Village is a preferred Life Plan Community.

  • Peace of mind: Real independence and security come from knowing you have a plan for your future healthcare with predictable costs. The Life Care Agreement you sign when you move in assures quality care in our fully licensed Health Center.
  • Maintenance-free lifestyle: Covenant Village removes all of the stress and worry of home maintenance, yard work, and mundane errands, including grocery shopping and meal planning.
  • Location: Covenant Village's meticulous landscaping preserves and enhances much of our setting's natural beauty featuring wooded land and abundant greenspaces. We’re close to shopping, physicians, and entertainment, with Charlotte or the mountains only a short commute away.
What if I have more questions? We can help.
Our marketing team is always available to answer your questions. We look forward to meeting you, showing you around our community, and introducing you to a few current residents.
