Care Levels

The Shores at Pleasant Hill offers all the amenities of maintenance-free independence with the added peace of mind that if your needs change, we’ll be right here to support you. 

Independent, 55+ Living

Residents live in their own maintenance-free apartment, surrounded by neighbors in their season of life and supported with an array of life enrichment opportunities. No health care support is included, so this type of retirement living is ideal for seniors without daily medical needs. 

Assisted Living

Residents enjoy all the benefits of independent senior living, with the added support of professionals to assist with daily activities like medication management, mobility, or help with a chronic condition.  

Memory Support

Memory care support is available for those seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our comprehensive memory support programming is directed by a nationally acclaimed memory support specialist and anchored by an intimate setting where compassionate team members support those with memory loss through meaningful activities and digitally supported family communication. 

Unsure of which senior care option is best for you? Our expert senior living consultants can help you determine which level is right for you.
