We’re glad you stopped by, and to help with your search, we’ve provided our community information below. We’re here to help you with any questions. Please call or drop by for a tour today!


Comfort and convenience add hours to your day to enjoy the things YOU enjoy doing. The Primrose lifestyle is maintenance-free, so you don’t need to worry about or schedule time for chores — lawn mowing, fertilizing, repairs — that normally would take up your day. We take care of everything from snow removal to repairs to providing 3 delicious, home-cooked meals every single day.

Enjoying the activities at Primrose and in the greater Decatur community at large will enrich your social life. Our Life Enrichment Coordinators strive to provide healthy and entertaining activities. See our activities calendar here.

You are rewarded with safety and security. Our nursing staff is on-site 24/7. Wellness checks are scheduled at regular intervals. Assistance with activities of daily living is provided in a non-intrusive and respectable manner that encourages independence and dignity.

Our housekeeping staff provide TLC at regularly scheduled intervals. Ask them about any special needs. Also, laundry services are available. Laundry hookups are available.

With so many things taken care of, you now have an opportunity to slow down and reflect. Pursue a hobby at Primrose, or join a collective volunteer effort. Read a favorite author in the library, or go online and research your geneology (or your geography). There are movies, popcorn, ice cream and coffee treats to thwart any pangs of hunger or caloric boredom, and the only requirement is pretty much just plunking yourself down in a chair and enjoying the company of folks just like you. Once you finish this type of activity, there’s exercise equipment in the Wellness Center to eliminate any guilt whatsoever.

While there’s always something to do at Primrose, it’s probably a good idea to kick your shoes off every now and then, slow down, and take some time to reflect. What’s great about the retirement living experience at Primrose, there’s no real rush or hurry to do anything unless it’s on the top of your list for the day and you absolutely want to do it right now.

Let the record show that we wholeheartedly encourage you to indulge your hobbies, crafts, pasttimes and other general efforts toward enjoying the delightful passage of time in pleasurable increments doing the things you love doing. You’re in charge of the throttle, so take it at any speed you like.

Add all of this to the beautiful people you’ll meet — people with stories and experiences to share — and you’ll be certain to experience a very rewarding retirement lifestyle.

Call for a tour today! Ask our Sales Director for information on how you can move into Primrose today and start experiencing an enriching lifestyle.
