  • I have lived in a few retirement communities and I have to say the Timbers of Shorewood is by far the best retirement community I have been in. I so appreciate the honesty and demeanor of the staff and caregivers. The compassion they share with all of us is very much appreciated by all who live here. Thanks for caring so much about us all!Jeri Haley – New Lenox, Illinois
  • The Timbers of Shorewood is the next best thing to home, from the staff to the new friends I have made that live here. I feel comfortable here and I can laugh again. Eight of my family members told me the Timbers of Shorewood is the top on the line. There are so many activities and entertainment here I’m never bored. In fact I didn’t know there was a happy side to life at this age.Claudine Warren – Morris, Illinois
  • To us, we have improved our lives, health and desires for our future. We joined the Timbers of Shorewood and found a helpful staff in health needs as well as a place to dwell amongst some fine people who provide friendship, joy and a caring attitude. We must mention our wedding here at the Timbers of Shorewood. Everything was provided, and we are still in awe of the arrangements and support of the entire staff. Our director was especially fantastic and caring. We were also elected King and Queen of the Senior Prom. As one can see, we enjoy complete care and concern, and our personal interests are completely satisfied. We are so pleased with the Timbers of Shorewood and feel people should consider it for there home.Ed & Margaret Brown – Joliet, Illinois
  • When we came back to Illinois in Nov 2008, we were stressed out and needing lots of help. At present we are stress & worry free, enjoying the safe and secure atmosphere of the Timbers of Shorewood. We appreciate the in house services provided by the skilled and caring staff. Who give us as much freedom and independence as we want, while helping us as much as we need! We have the varied activities and entertainment which runs the gamut from crafts to classical concerts, to the on-site gardening and fishing! Our expanding waistlines attest to the tasty menu & specials in our restaurant. We enjoy dressing up a little for the “Fancy Dinners.” We have no need to go beyond the front door to have every need fulfilled.Doug and Kay Abell – Texas
  • From my first visit, as a tour, and then as a resident, I have felt welcome. The staff, in every capacity has been friendly and efficient. During more than a year and a half I have found so many new friends among the staff and residents. Holidays are celebrated with delightful decorations, varied entertainment and gatherings to include family members.Louise Corey – Joliet, Illinois
  • At some point in your life you may have to consider finding an independent or assisted living facility for a relative or loved one. I was fortunate to have selected The Timbers of Shorewood located on River Road in Shorewood, IL. It is very convenient for me to visit my mother because I live in Shorewood. However, for those visiting from out of town, highway I-55 is very close to the senior living facility. My mother, Marie, became a resident of the Timbers in March, 2006. My family has been very satisfied with the type of care she has received in that period of time. Marie lives in a one bedroom apartment in one of the independent rental buildings and purchases some assisted services. For example, a CNA (Certified Nurses Assistant) gives her medications 3 times per day, room checks every two hours, washes a basket of clothing once per week, etc. I have been extremely satisfied with the overall care of the various CNA’s, dining room employees, receptionists at the front desk, administrators and building maintenance employees. I really feel that the employees at the Timbers enjoy working with senior citizens. I sense that the residents enjoy living at the Timbers because they receive this specialized care from caring employees. The majority are dedicated, conscientious and very friendly.Russ Ghilian – Shorewood, Illinois
  • My mom, Bonnie Hicks, was overwhelmed in her first few days. But a few days later, she decided that she liked her new place. Then a few more days later, she decided that she loves her new place! Moving my mom into the Timbers was the best decision my brothers and I could have made for her. Thank you!Paige Brei – Crown Point, Indiana
  • The professional staff of the Timbers is exceptional. Not only are they well qualified and experienced, but they demonstrate a genuine care and concern for each and all of the residents. I particularly like the flexibility of the time where my wife enjoys eating her meals and visiting with her friends in the restaurant. While I prefer eating in the comfort of my apartment in my pj’s, a robe and some slippers.Russ Corey – Joliet, Illinois
  • My Mother has been a resident of the Timbers of Shorewood for over four years. From the first time my wife and I visited the Timbers (well before Mom moved in) we decided that when the time was right, this is where we wanted Mom to live. At first, we were simply impressed by the newness and cleanliness of the facility. The more we learned as time went on, the more we realized there were many more reasons why this was the place that we would entrust with Mom’s care. First and foremost, is the caring staff. Provisions were made for Mom’s special dietary requirements. Her meals are monitored daily with great care by the restaurant staff. The home care team is very attentive and very committed to performing their critical task successfully. Whenever an issue or concern comes up, it is addressed with an appropriate sense of urgency. I am a very involved family member and communicate frequently with the staff there. Mom is known personally and treated as if she was a family member.Nicholas S. Macris – Joliet, Illinois
  • Thank you for all you do for our mom and the other residents. You are the central help for questions, problems, work orders, emergencies, etc. Without all of your devoted work the Timbers wouldn’t be the wonderful facility it is. Thank you for what you do for our Mom and for us when we need something. God Bless you all.Lynn T. & Cindy H. – Shorewood, Illinois
  • We want to thank all of the staff at the Timbers for everything that they do for our Mom. THANK YOU! The Timbers is a very special place and we don’t know what we would do without you!Scott, Pat & Leslie S. – Bolingbrook, Illinois
  • I would like to compliment you on assembling an outstanding staff at the Timbers. Everyone there has displayed a caring, compassionate and positive attitude. My Dad and I, as her primary caregivers, recognize this is a great place for her to be for assisted living until she is able to return home. So in closing, be proud of the Timbers team and keep up the good work.Mark J. – Joliet, Illinois
