Timbers of Shorewood

At the Timbers of Shorewood we tailor our care to meet the needs of each resident specifically through our supportive options. Our care is coordinated with the resident and family before the resident moves, and together we design a Person-Centered Care plan. These plans are flexible because as the resident's needs change, so will the care that is given to best match individual needs.
