Independent Living - Scott Farrer

“My husband Eric and I moved into Scott-Farrar from Arizona, during the summer of 2020. We live in a spacious two-bedroom apartment with lots of windows and sunlight, which we love. I am enjoying interacting with neighbors through knitting and book club and my sister Ann lives just down the hall from me. Through all the uncertainty with the COVID-19 pandemic, I felt safe at Scott-Farrar and continue to feel safe here. I am so glad we made the decision to return to the Monadnock Region and call Scott-Farrar home.”

– Jane Ellingson, Independent Living Resident at Scott-Farrar
