What Our Residents Say...
This is the best thing that's ever happened to me. When I came here I only weighed 145 pounds. Now I'm a healthy 185 pounds. They took me in as part of the family. The staff has bent over backwards to make me feel at home, and I'm in for the long haul.Rating:
I feel so at home here. If I feel like sitting in the living room by the fireplace, I just do it. I didn't have a fireplace at home but always wanted one. When I entertain my family, we just go down to the pool table or the living area and enjoy ourselves. There are always drinks and snacks available. I also like the fact that I don't have to leave for church services. The missionaries come here and are also available for special prayer.Rating:
Everything is beautiful here - the food, the staff, the girls, my walks. My son lives next door to Linda Hines, and that's how I got to know about Grace. Now I'm here living the life of Reilly. Just look at us, we're all happy! Everything is beautiful.Rating:
I moved into Grace Assisted Living when it opened in 2005 from my home where I had lived for many years. I lost my husband after sixty-seven years of marriage. But I have been happy here. They treat me well, and I could not have found a better place. I love my apartment, and the staff is very thoughtful and helpful.Rating:

Grace Senior Living Communities
The owners of Grace Assisted Living has maintained a reputation for unmatched commitment to care and operational excellence for 32 years and it all starts with the buildings. Residents of assisted living and memory care enjoy an innovative environment with state-of-the-art safety features.

Sitting and visiting spaces are decorated with carefully chosen, beautiful décor that is elegant but comfortable and often feature cozy fireplaces. Our senior living residents love the bistros, theatres, libraries, activity and game rooms. These are just a few of the amenities in our building designs that show our commitment to the families that chose Grace Assisted Living.
Our residents, like those in most senior living communities, appreciate a quiet setting close to things they and their families like to do.
Grace Assisted Living and Independent Living residents enjoy covered parking, patios, and plenty of sidewalks for those who like a fresh air walk.
Delicious meals are thoughtfully planned by a professional chef and prepared and served by well trained staff (dessert is always served)! Our private dining room is perfect for special occasions and family birthday parties.
One resident and family favorite is the Grace bus. Our bus is especially equipped with motorized lifts for wheelchairs so that residents of every ability level can enjoy the bus for “Mystery Rides” and country drives where ice cream stops are not unusual. The bus is also convenient for residents’ shopping trips and medical appointments.
Support as we age is a family’s number one concern. It takes a lot off our assisted living, independent living, and memory care residents’ shoulders and when they know a little help is just a button push away – someone is always there.
