Welcome to retirement living at its finest

I would love for you to experience the Primrose difference. See for yourself why we say, “This Is Living!

Smiling faces, modern amenities, social activities, attentive staff and delicious meals are all waiting for your arrival at Primrose. Discover why your best years are still ahead of you at our Mishawaka retirement community.


Experience peace and quiet paired with modern amenities and conveniences. If you need to get out, say, for a haircut, it’s just one floor up or just down the hall. Want to see a movie with friends? Our on-site theater is only a short walk from your apartment. Looking to build stamina and stay active this winter? You only need to travel a short distance to enter our wellness center. Conveniently located to Historic Downtown Mishawka not far from the Notre Dame’s Campus.

What does all this mean? Primrose makes retirement living easy, convenient, and tailored to your schedule! 

Other perks of living at Primrose:
– Housekeeping stops by on schedule
– Nursing staff attend to any medical needs
– Maintenance staff repairs anything that’s misbehaving
– Delicious meals are prepared 3 times a day

Feel like socializing? We also play host to weekly in-community events, parties, get-togethers, wellness exercises, general activities, and so much more! Live near plenty of shopping and restaurants not far from your new home.

You being a member of our Mishawaka retirement community adds so much flavor and character and warmth to our way of life. Your neighbors will appreciate your contributions both socially and personally, and friendships will blossom. Your first week at Primrose is a great time to catch up— and it’s quite possible you have friends already here!
