Where you're always right at home

Nestled on 110-acres amidst the tranquil hills of Litchfield County, Noble Horizons has been the undisputed choice for senior living across the tri-state region (CT, NY, MA)  since its founding in 1972. Noble Horizons offers four unique separate levels of living: independent living in cottages or in a residential hotel; intermediate care; skilled nursing and memory care, each of which is expertly designed to meet an individual’s physical and social needs.

Residents from the immediate area and further afield discover that Noble Horizons is a beautiful setting and a welcoming environment that enables them to enjoy all that life has to offer. Additionally, Noble offers short-term residential rehabilitation for those who need nursing and supportive care while recovering from an illness or surgery. Noble’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Center provides pre- and post-operative therapy services as well as appointments for community members wishing to enhance mobility, balance, or move with greater ease and comfort. 

For nearly 50 years, Noble Horizons has remained a leader in the Continuum of Care concept. Residents enter Noble Horizons at the level of living that best meets their physical and social needs. Should those needs change, the transition to a higher level of care is seamless, allowing the resident to remain in familiar surroundings with staff they know and trust. 

Noble Horizons is a village of Church Homes, Inc (CHI), a not-for-profit corporation.

Noble Horizons also participates in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Candidates for admission are considered regardless of age, race, color, creed, handicap, gender, sexual orientation or national origin.
