For over 25 years, Our Lady of Peace has offered quality Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, On-site Rehabilitation, and long-term Nursing Care.

Independent Living residents enjoy a vibrant, maintenance-free lifestyle with nurses available 24 hours a day, should they ever be needed.  Residents needing a bit more help can turn to us for our trusted Assisted Living care, which is customized for each resident to preserve independence and allow everyone to live life to their fullest potential. In our unique Christopher Center, we provided secure and specialized Memory Care for those Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia.  If current or prospective residents need Rehabilitation services, we offer speech, physical, and occupational therapy on site.  Should a higher level of care ever be required, compassionate Nursing Care is also available in our community.

At Our Lady of Peace, our residents come first.  No matter the circumstances, their health, well-being, and happiness remain – as always – our top priority. We provide comfortable and affordable senior living apartments and a full continuum of care for all who call Our Lady of Peace home.

Memory Care in The Christopher Center

The Christopher Center at Our Lady of Peace is designed as a pavilion featuring a bright atrium with a central area made up of a nurse’s station, music room, sunroom, dining room, and activity room. Resident suites surround the central living area. A secure courtyard allows residents to enjoy the outdoors whenever they like.

The Reflections Memory Care Program provides a fresh perspective on Memory Care using the latest therapeutic approaches. Specially selected caregivers are required to complete an intensive 15-hour training course. The goal of Reflections is to enhance resident engagement, create opportunities for success based on individual abilities, and help create positive relationships with residents, families, and caregivers.

Additional Care Services – Nursing and Rehab

The future always holds some uncertainty, but at Our Lady of Peace we’re here to help minimize the unknown. If you ever need to transition to long-term nursing care, you can expect to receive the same personalized attention, from the same familiar faces, in surroundings you call home. And if you are already a resident you will receive priority admission to our nursing center if the need should ever arise.

We also partner with Genesis Rehab Services to provide convenient, on-site access to rehabilitation services for our current residents if they should require physical, occupational, or speech therapy.
