Greenfields senior living

At The GreenFields in Lancaster, NY, we understand that everyone’s situation is different. It’s why we work to provide an environment that’s inclusive, welcoming, and receptive to the needs of each resident. The GreenFields senior living offers options for residents with a wide range of needs, from residential apartments at GreenField Manor to assisted living homes at GreenField Court, as well as memory care at GreenField Terrace, and skilled nursing, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation and therapy at GreenField Health & Rehabilitation Center. We also understand the confusion that can come with choosing a level of care for yourself or your loved one(s) when trying to determine if independent living or assisted living is the right fit.


The GreenFields Senior Living Option 1: Independent Living

The GreenFields senior living facility, GreenField Manor, is ideal for anyone looking to focus on enjoying retirement without worrying about the little things. Instead of focusing on daily chores and maintaining their home, residents can spend their time pursuing hobbies, traveling, reading, or visiting with friends. Our senior living home offers residents the freedom to pursue their interests and enjoy retirement life to the fullest.


The GreenFields Senior Living Option 2: Assisted Living

GreenField Court, The GreenFields assisted living facility, is best suited for those who require extra help with life’s daily activities. Here, residents can find the assistance they need while still enjoying their freedom and privacy, along with the companionship of friends and loved ones. Staff members are on-site 24 hours a day to provide assistance with a full range of activities.



GreenField Manor and GreenField Court apartments offer many of the same amenities. Both feature:

  • Individually controlled heating and air conditioning
  • Pre-wired telephone and cable TV hook-ups
  • Wi-Fi, emergency response systems
  • Easily accessible bathrooms with walk-in showers
  • Smoke detectors
  • Fire sprinklers

Senior living and assisted living apartments include all utilities except telephone and cable television. Additionally, they both offer weekly housekeeping services, scheduled courtesy transportation, recreational programs, apartment/grounds maintenance, 24-hour security, and priority access to all levels of care.


So, what’s the difference?

The main differences between our senior living and assisted living facilities are that GreenField Manor includes a fully equipped kitchen. This includes a refrigerator, oven range, and dishwasher, a washer and dryer, continental breakfast, and the residents’ choice of either lunch or dinner serviced in our restaurant-style dining room.

In contrast, GreenField Court offers a kitchenette. This includes refrigerator, sink and microwave, laundry service, and three meals per day served in our dining room. In addition, GreenFields assisted living includes case management services, 24-hour assistance with daily living activities, and health and personal care services, including nurse-managed medication assistance.
