    Highlights
    Our assisted living has 48 apartments, 24 studios and 24 1 bdrm apartments. They each have a kitchenette with a microwave and a refrigerator. The apartments are very attractive and well maintained. We are located on Bower Hill Road, just down the road from St. Clair Hospital. We have a strong supportive staff that are there to lend a helping hand when needed. We also have a skilled nursing center that can provide rehabilitation when needed. In addition, we have a secured Memory Support unit with a fenced in garden that the residents can enjoy safely. It is a small unit with 12 residents in private rooms with a private bath. The residents have a strong activity program that is tailored to their needs. Because the unit is so small, the residents receive a lot of special attention.
