Our Living Options

Our senior living community offers supportive assisted living and high-quality memory care. This combination of senior lifestyles makes it possible for couples with different needs to remain together in the same community. 


Assisted Living

Assisted living — or supportive living as we like to call it — offers a little support and a lot of pampering and personalized attention. This means residents are empowered to live fully and happily while enjoying all the benefits that come with community life.


Memory Care

Cascades of Chesterley’s memory care environment is designed with safety, comfort and functionality in mind, while our life-enrichment programs are created to add daily meaning and value to our residents’ lives.


Respite Care

Respite care — or short-term stays — is designed for those caring for aging loved ones who may be going on vacation or who may simply need a temporary respite from caregiving.

Business Office Manager
The joy my seniors give to me, and the stories being told around the clock. They help give you insight to what life is all about. Being able to come to work and be welcomed in with a smile and a warm hug. Most importantly the relationships I gain with each and every one of my seniors. My greatest passion is coming to work knowing I get to build a memory with seniors, knowing I am helping someone through everything life may throw at our seniors. Being by their side through the good, bad and greatest times of our lives together. On my personal time I love to go on adventures with my puppy Winston and my supportive Husband. I love to travel, especially going to Disneyworld, definitely is the best place on earth next to Chesterley.
