Community Life That Fills Your Day with Meaning and Enjoyment

Independent Senior Living

At Peabody Retirement Community in North Manchester, we like to say we “celebrate the ageless spirit.” What does that mean? It means giving you exceptional senior independent living options to live well, pursue new opportunities, and enjoy the things that have always given your life meaning. This includes offering an array of creative activities such as transportation to wonderful destinations like Wrigley Field, Amish Acres and Brown County, spiritual guidance and relaxation, and exciting ways to exercise your body and brain, all while having fun!

In our independent senior living community, you might meet friends for lunch in one of Peabody’s dining venues, stroll the lovely 33-acre campus, stop by the Billie Jane Strauss Wellness Center for a workout, or just kick back in your well-appointed residence. You’ve found northeastern Indiana’s finest choice for vibrant senior independent living!

  • Restaurant-style dining in six dining rooms
  • Library with internet access
  • Exercise in the Billie Jane Strauss Wellness Center
