Independent Living

Independent Living at Shepherd Premier Senior Living is about independence, safety, and life quality.  

With Shepherd Independent Living, rather than abandon the life they’ve known and loved, they’ll continue homestyle living but without the worries. It’s time for them to set their minds at ease – for loved ones to set their minds at ease – while seniors enjoy that safe, secure and active lifestyle they’ve earned.

"The very best place for my mom! Of course you have a hard time handing your loved one over to somebody else's care, but I have slept every night peacefully trusting and knowing that the caregivers have the biggest hearts and take care of your love on as if they were their own."
Nancy Ann Glick

Independent living with the support of a loving staff

Our respectful and compassionate staff are on hand 24/7 to meet resident needs, including for medication reminders and are qualified to respond in case of an emergency. A home is where a family lives and receives support from the family. Our caregivers are the family members your loved one will come to trust.  Our caregivers are there to give the emotional and physical support that makes it clear that residents matter, and matter first and foremost.
