A Small Community
  • 8 spacious, private suites with en suite bathrooms in each of two homes.
  • Staff available onsite 24/7.
  • Residents and staff know each other well and form real connections.
  • Individualized care is provided based on the person and their wants and needs.
  • Security is tight. There is only one entrance. Staff members are aware of every person who enters the home.
Memory Care Available
  • Residents never have to move to a different room or a locked unit.
  • Staff adapts care to meet residents’ changing needs.
  • Residents are not forced to participate in activities that make them uncomfortable.
  • Residents interact with fewer people than in a large facility, leading to less confusion.
Professional & Friendly Staff
  • Our founder and owner is a veteran of the hospitality industry, having owned a restaurant and worked in the dining room at a large assisted living facility. She knows how to make people feel welcome, and she knows how to nurture older adults.
  • Staff members know each resident personally and can recognize when additional care or services are needed.
  • Caregivers have the power and the knowledge to put residents’ needs first—always.
  • Staff members help residents avoid medical emergencies by providing proactive care.
  • Caregivers are all highly trained, including LPNs, CNAs, and Med-techs. There are 3 LPNs on staff.
  • All staff members are trained in dementia care.
  • We have an extremely low staff turnover rate.
All-Inclusive Facility
  • NO hidden fees or up charges.
  • Your loved one’s care needs may change, but the price will not.
  • Traditional assisted living facilities frequently add fees for certain necessities or higher levels of care.
High Staff-to-Resident Ratio - 1:4
  • We have one staff member on duty for every four residents, significantly higher than the industry standard.
  • The Administrator of the home lives on site. She is available 24/7 and knows every resident and their needs.

    • have fallen or are a fall risk.
    • are recovering from surgery or a long-term illness.
    • are leaving the hospital and have long-term medical conditions.
    • have depression.
    • have vision impairments.
    • have had a stroke.
Open, Honest and Frequent Communication
  • Admission decisions are made by the Administrator and caregivers—not by a sales person. They will determine if they are capable of providing the care your loved one needs.
  • Caregivers communicate directly with residents to understand changes in health, behavior or medication needs.
  • Shift managers make sure that care plans are communicated effectively, so no mistakes are made.
  • Comments and complaints are heard in person and handled promptly.
