To us, creating an alternative to the institutional feel of traditional senior living is personal. In fact, it’s inspired by the experiences of our founders with their own families in senior living. That’s why it’s so important to us that our residents live with dignity and enjoy active, enriching lives in a safe, comfortable home setting. Yes, we said home setting. Boutique senior living is actually residential care provided in a single-family home! We think it blends the best of both worlds – the comfort of home with the quality care and amenities of traditional senior living. Let’s find out if our families agree.
What Makes Boutique Senior Living Different
So how exactly does Shepherd Premier blend the best of home and senior living? And more importantly, how does this create a unique experience that benefits your loved one?
First, we offer a one to five caregiver to resident ratio. This is nearly unheard of in senior living and it means your loved one will have more personalized care and attention by caregivers that really know them.
Your loved one will also enjoy all the familiar comforts of home – a quiet, residential neighborhood, a warm, inviting setting and even homemade meals served family-style. We also feature large yards perfect for family get togethers!
But they won’t lack the amenities of traditional senior living as we provide laundry, housekeeping, transportation and state-of-the-art safety features as well. Not to mention the same fitness, social and enrichment opportunities.
It all makes for an easier transition when it comes time for assisted living or memory care. Where your loved one might have trouble adjusting to the crowd and expansive campus in traditional senior living, here they will share life with just 10 to 16 residents and loving, familiar caregivers.
Boutique Senior Living from Those Who Know Best
But don’t take our word for it; here’s what our families have to say about boutique senior living at Shepherd Premier:
“I would definitely recommend Shepherd to anyone! The staff truly loves their residents and my mom is doing great there! If you have a parent or loved one that needs care, I would not hesitate to move them here.”

“Brandon and the rest of the team were so compassionate and caring and took the time to listen to our heart’s desire for our dad. Karen the admin has been a blessing in putting our hearts to rest assuring us our dad would be in good hands with their skilled CNAs and other skilled staff employees.
My sister and I are very pleased with how our dad who has late-stage memory issues has been cared for, dignified and honored thus far! Thank you all at Shepherd Premiere for loving my dad and all the residents who call this place home.”

“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 loved one as if they were their own.”
