Independent Living

Freedom and privacy are inherent qualities of life in a Kendal community, and we seek to preserve an atmosphere of mutual respect, dignity, caring and trust for all. At the same time, residents feel a deep sense of community and belonging, knowing that their neighbors and staff are there for them in good times and bad.

Kendal at Ithaca offers all-inclusive wellness and health care choices to enhance your sense of freedom and security in retirement. Residents enjoy attractive accommodations, residential services, wellness programs, a fitness center and onsite health care for life.

Kendal at Ithaca has 236 independent living units on our 105 acre campus: 167 cottages built within our perimeter road, and 69 apartments attached to the Community Center. They come in six sizes, ranging from a studio to a two bedroom with den. NOTE: At this time our Virtual Tours are not available. We are working on resolving software issues and hope to have them back on-line soon!
