Advances in health care have pushed “old age” into later decades. Not only are seniors benefitting from better health care and longer lifespans, but they have available to them more residential options. They can remain home with care, or they can choose an independent or assisted lifestyle community.
Homewood at Martinsburg meets the needs of an active and independent generation of baby boomers. Homewood is busy maintaining the demands of this generation, by encouraging independence, growth, wellness and opportunity.
Homewood at Martinsburg is an age 55 and over Community that includes a combination of independent living, assisted lifestyle living, skilled nursing care, memory care and rehabilitation services available to residents all on one campus. As their needs change over time, the resident can stay in the community where they are known and the environment is familiar.
This can be attractive to seniors seeking long-term care who expect that their needs may increase with age. This is also an appealing option for senior couples who require different levels of care as they age together.
Today’s seniors are also demanding that senior living be vibrant and energetic, with a focus on living life well. Homewood at Martinsburg offers many amenities such as exercise room, swimming pool, life-enriching activities, art classes, shows, entertainment, outings and a new wellness center in development,.

Instead, residents are able to enjoy meals prepared by a trained chef in a dining room full of friends and neighbors. They no longer have to tend to home maintenance; it is taken care of for them.
Here at Homewood at Martinsburg, residents are happily busy, pursuing their interests and staying healthy. They are making new friendships, taking trips together, and toasting over plates of delicious foods. The best part of being a resident in an active senior community? All of it!
