Carmel, Indiana’s Premier Senior Living Community

At The Stratford, our members experience retirement the way it’s meant to be.

The Stratford is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Carmel, Indiana. Located on 8-1/2 acres in the vibrant Village of West Clay, our community offers an unparalleled senior lifestyle with endless amenities. Living options come in the form of both apartments and cottage homes, which are spacious, elegant and exuding luxury in every way. Members of our community take advantage of industry-leading care services, restaurant-style fine dining, a never-ending social calendar and an award-winning wellness program. While it may sound cliché, we are more than just a retirement community—we are a place where seniors can enjoy their friends and family and make the most of every day.

The Stratford is your premier choice for independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, and short-term rehab. Our members take comfort knowing all these services are available under one roof, meaning that if their needs ever change, they can transition to a new living option without having to find a new community. That’s just one more part of The Stratford difference.

We invite you to explore our website, read about our various senior living options and discover why The Stratford is in a class of its own. If you’re interested in learning more, just give us a call at the number below or schedule a tour of our community online. We can’t wait to meet you!
