Residential Care in a Home Setting

This is Home

At Shepherd Premier Senior Living we have crafted a unique senior-living experience to meet the individual needs of the residents we serve.

Until Shepherd Premier Senior Living came to Illinois, the alternative for senior living was primarily confined to large homes where one caregiver might have responsibility for caring for 20 residents. But, in July 2014, founder Brandon Schwab watched his father-in-law play the piano in a 5-bed boutique senior living home in Orlando, FL. The difference was dramatic. 

In a senior home in Florida, Brandon saw seniors living active lives, safe, secure, comfortable and with dignity. He understood that those are qualities that are universally desired by seniors in all parts of the country, including in Illinois.
