A Family Approach
As a family-owned senior living community, we empower all staff members to make Connemara a friendly, clean, comfortable home for our residents.
Connemara offers three customizable senior living programs that allow us to support our residents over time, even as their needs change. We take pride in the fact that we are an affordable option compared to other assisted living facilities in our area. But most of all, we are committed to getting to know our residents as individuals and making them feel welcome and part of the Connemara family.
The community’s name is a tribute to owner John Burke’s grandparents. Connemara is a region in County Galway, Ireland known for its stunning beauty, gracious people, and love of good food and music. It should come as no surprise that you will find John or one of his family members on-site in the community every day, encouraging an atmosphere of warmth and ensuring an exceptional resident experience.
