The Otsego location provides a warm-water therapy pool and pickleball court.


We also offer Wellness on Wheels at all of our locations!  Wellness on Wheels is a traveling wellness program that brings group fitness classes directly to our residents and tenants! Not all of our GA sites have a Club GA, so we bring Club GA to the sites.
Wellness on Wheels Program consists of certified instructor led exercise classes that focus on muscle strengthening, balance, and range of motion – replicating activities of daily living.  They are appropriate for all fitness levels as the experienced instructors are able to offer direction to increase intensity or modifications for simplifying the movements (ie-seated only options, joint discomfort, etc.).

Independent Living is for seniors who are able to live on their own, yet want the conveniences of living within a community that provide social and recreational amenities, educational and wellness opportunities, housekeeping services, and dining options.

Assisted Living is for seniors who need help with the activities of daily living. Residents find an enriching lifestyle with amenities that allow to them to remain as independent as possible. Guardian Angels’ communities home care services include assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, medication management, weekly personal laundry, and three meals daily. Services can be increased or decreased over time, as needed.

Are doctor visits available?

Guardian Angels communities do not employ physicians or nurse practitioners; however, certain health plans/clinics devote time for their practitioners to be on-site at our various communities.


Your Administrator or Clinical Coordinator can provide contact information for the provider who visits your building. You are responsible to consult with your provider to determine if your insurance company covers this service.


The providers at each site will only see residents who sign up for care through their health plan or clinic on a routine basis. Medical physicians do not provide any type of urgent care setting while they are on-site.


The provider, in their sole discretion, determines frequency of visits including day of week and time.
