Feels Like Family, Feels Like Home

About Rose Senior Living Avon

Edward Rose and Sons external link began building homes of exceptional value for families a century ago, and we’ve understood from the beginning that a home is not just walls and plumbing and a roof over the head. No, home is something so much more.

Home is family. 


And how do we know this? Simple. It’s just who we are. Edward Rose and Sons really is a family—not just a name emblazoned on a sign or etched on a business card—and we care about the homes we create the communities we build, and the experiences of the people who live in them.

It’s this longstanding legacy of understanding home and family that we bring to every senior living community that bears the Rose name.

We thoughtfully design our communities with real value in mind so seniors can live the lives they want to live—in spacious, comfortable apartment homes with no entrance fee, no worries about maintenance, exceptional services and amenities, access to wonderful dining experiences, and warm and gracious spaces to gather with friends and family. And when a helping hand is ever needed, it’s always right there, with assisted living facilities and memory care available, all under the same roof.
