Our Services

Independent Living

Designed for seniors who want to live independently in an active community with freedom, choices and security. Leave the burdens of household maintenance behind and enjoy a fulfilling life.

Independent with Support

Live independently with a little help along the way. We are proud to offer a la carte support such as medication reminders or help with laundry.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living is for seniors whose needs have changed. Residents enjoy living in a safe and secure community with supportive care specifically designed to meet their personal needs.

Short Term Stays

A Short Term Stay or Respite is a great way to sample life in our community. Stay in a fully furnished apartment and enjoy retirement living anywhere from a weekend to a month, or longer.


A community that’s full of life, service, and spirit.

The Timbers of Shorewood began with the vision of two military veterans who wanted to create active retirement living in a community that would stand apart from others in both service and spirit.  That vision and their experience of more than thirty years with senior communities served as the foundation in developing The Timbers of Shorewood, an exceptional senior community in an ideal setting.
