Independent Living

Residential Independent Living at Kendal at Lexington


Kendal at Lexington residents are truly engaged. They are involved in planning their own lives and connecting to the campus and the larger community around them. From well-designed studio apartments to two-bedroom with den cottages—and everything in between—residents have a wide range of choices to help them find the place that they can call home.

Homes range from 550 to more than 2,000 square feet. All have full-sized kitchens and laundry appliances, and either a balcony, patio or sunroom. And all have access to convenient parking, including some carports and many free-standing cottages with garages.

Join the Priority Waitlist


We maintain a Priority Waitlist for prospective residents. Joining the list allows Kendal to keep you informed when the residence you desire is available within the timeline you are looking for. This could be one year or even planning 10 years ahead.
