Independent Living

Enjoying Life on Your Terms, in a Supportive Community

Bishop Primeau Senior Living Community offers a vibrant and engaging independent living community for you to enjoy life on your terms in a secure and comfortable apartment setting.

Services at Bishop Primeau include access to on-site meals and dining if desired, as well as light housekeeping, transportation and participation in recreational activities. While we offer a quiet and spacious living space, there’s rarely a dull moment for those who like to stay busy. A variety of social, cultural and recreational programs keep you active, enable you to discover new passions and forge strong friendships with other community members.

You aren’t locked into a long-term arrangement like many other independent living facilities, either. Residents sign a one-year lease and pay monthly rent. There are no entrance fees.

Is Independent Living Right For You?

Your independence is important. So is having a community to belong to. That is what Bishop Primeau Senior Living Community affords you. Our spacious apartments allow you to downsize while gaining a new circle of friends, so you can stay connected and not feel isolated.

Enjoy all the benefits of living at home without the burden of maintaining a house. You don’t have to worry about mowing the lawn, cooking (if you choose) or shoveling the driveway. We take care of the maintenance, chores and heavy lifting to reduce the stress in your life.

A Great Lifestyle Solution and Better Value

Bishop Primeau, with 25 private and spacious apartments, is located adjacent to St. Teresa Rehabilitation & Nursing Center in Manchester, New Hampshire, just off I-93.  We provide the same level of services, activities and amenities you would find at larger senior living communities, but also take pride in our unique, close-knit community, one in which you won’t feel overwhelmed.

Services at Bishop Primeau include access to on-site meals and dining if desired, light housekeeping, and transportation and participation in recreational activities. Home support services are readily available and can be arranged through a licensed home care provider.

Distinctly different from assisted living or nursing home care, there are no healthcare or personal care services provided directly by the independent living community.

We are a more affordable alternative to the independent living part of a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) with similar support services. Bishop Primeau has a service coordinator who manages the apartments, helps arrange services and organizes shopping trips and outings in our community van.


Whether you need light housekeeping, the linens changed on your bed or even “brush off” service for your car after a winter’s snow, we are there to support you and take the stress away.

Enjoy nutritional, home-style meals at affordable prices and on an individual basis. Family is always welcome to join. There is an abundance of social, cultural and recreational programs to keep you active and engaged with other residents, as well as weekly shopping trips to keep you out and about.  We also have an on-site chapel with daily Mass.

Life after retirement should be enjoyed. Our independent living allows you more time for friends, family and you!
