Located in Brighton on what was once Maxion Farms, St. John’s Meadows supports more than 400 senior residents, combining the scenic beauty of the area with the convenience of a community. With options available for both cottage and apartment living, it allows residents to live a maintenance-free lifestyle in their later years, with staff handling trash and snow removal, lawn care and other chores. The community welcomes pets and even provides in-home veterinary care services. Its Market Cafe and Briarwood Dining Room provide options for dining, with private dining rooms also available. For those who like to stay physically active, there are weekly swim classes at the indoor heated pool, along with exercise classes in the community's fitness room. A full schedule of social, educational and entertainment activities is available for residents, along with numerous multipurpose rooms for clubs.
What Residents are Saying:
The community supports residents who wish to pursue their hobbies and encourages seniors to get involved. One resident says, “We were looking for a community that we could be involved in, not just sit around in our apartment. We also wanted a place that was open to new ideas we could propose - that was important."
