Independent Living

Independent living is a great choice for those who want to maintain their lifestyle with the benefits of assisted living. Emergency health situations are addressed quickly, and general wellbeing is maintained by more than just you or your loved one. While transitioning to an independent living facility may seem daunting or stressful, Carespring aims at providing top-quality care to residents while allowing them to maintain their independence.

If you or your loved one lives an active lifestyle, independent living may be the right choice. Many communities provide physical and social opportunities for interaction and growth, which can make the retirement stage of life fun and enjoyable. At Carespring, we value enriching the lives of our residents through activities, healthy food, and beautiful environments.


The Barrington of Ft. Thomas

The Barrington is the premier independent living housing in the area. Nestled next to the Campbell County Public Library and Good Shepherd Pelletier Church, each resident has their own spacious, private living areas. Our community is located in a peaceful location that’s close to so much in the well-established Ft. Thomas community.

You may think of them as apartments, but we offer so much more than a senior living space. With meals prepared by a Master Chef, an exercise facility staffed with a full-time physical therapist, and a cocktail lounge, you’ll feel right at home.

At The Barrington, there’s always an activity going on. Happy Hour is a popular option, along with outings to the Cincinnati Art Museum or a Reds Game. Our fitness center, beauty/barber shop, sundry store, and activity center are yours to use whenever you feel like it! 

If you want to plan an outing for yourself but aren’t sure where to go or how to acquire transportation, we can help with that too. We will help you choose a fun place to go and provide transportation to and from your selected destination.

Along the way, you’ll meet neighbors who will quickly become friends. Before you know it, you’ll be swapping stories about your grandchildren and travel experiences while you enjoy one of our chef’s delicious entrees in the dining room. We love seeing people in our community become fast friends through shared experiences and fun activities!

At The Barrington of Ft. Thomas, you have a choice of studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom living options to call home. All apartments come equipped with a variety of amenities, such as: 

  • Washer and dryer
  • Cable TV
  • Weekly housekeeping
  • Elcombe Security Link System (this state-of-the-art phone system provides a link with our Resident Care Coordinators for your health and security)
  • Many of our apartments come with a balcony or patio option as well.

You’ll find life at The Barrington is active, involved, and perfect for those who can live independently. Retirement living at The Barrington is just as it should be: exciting, relaxing, and tailored to your loved one’s needs. 

We’d love the opportunity to show you just how pleasant retirement can be here! To arrange a personal tour, ask a question, or get to know Carespring health facilities, call 859-609-3307. There’s no better place for independent living in the Cincinnati area than The Barrington of Ft. Thomas!


What Is Independent Living?

Independent living is housing designed specifically for retirement-age adults, typically 55 years or older. The style of living can range anywhere from freestanding homes to apartment-style living.

Generally speaking, independent living is designed for older adults. It takes into account things like bathroom safety and ease of movement, often being easy to navigate.


The Benefits of Independent Living

Along with the peace of mind that you or your loved one will be taken care of, independent living comes with many added benefits. Some of these may include:

Human Connection and Social Life

Our independent living community has organized activities and planned outings. Our residents are never lacking in activities to do or places to go! Having easy access to both human interaction and fun activities help to keep the brain active and spirits high.

Remaining both socially and physically active is an important part of maintaining your health at any age, but is especially true for seniors. Another benefit is living with people around your same age. Chances are, you or your loved one will become fast friends with your neighbors over shared experiences and photos of grandkids. 

24-Hour Security

This goes for both general security concerns as well as physical health. Our facilities have 24-hour security features including the Elcombe Security Link System. This state-of-the-art phone system provides a link with our Resident Care Coordinators for residents’ health and security. This makes the response time much quicker than normal emergency services. We also have 24-hour security for general security concerns.

Maintenance-Free Living

Our residents never have to worry about maintaining their apartments! No more taxing chores such as shoveling snow, mowing the lawn, or fixing broken amenities. Along with weekly housekeeping services, we take care of all of fixing or upgrading your apartment quickly and efficiently. In a Carespring independent living community, you won’t be waiting for an extended period of time for someone to come and fix your dishwasher or sink.

Easy Transition to Assisted Living, If Needed

If the time comes when you or your loved one need a little more day-to-day assistance, the transition to an assisted living community is easier. Carespring has a variety of assisted living communities and nursing homes, so you have many options for locations and services provided! We provide just the right amount of senior care and assistance when needed. For more information on our assisted living communities, click here.
