About the community

Class up your retirement with exciting and easy living near the beach at the Normandy’s Breakwater community, an assisted living and memory care community in the beautiful state of Ohio. We have a prime location for adventurous Ohioans, with Lake Erie only two blocks down the road, plus the popular vacation destination Put-In-Bay less than two hours away by car. We know how to create a lively atmosphere here, and we like to think of ourselves as a place where you can “live the good life” again and again. Built in 1969 and renovated to modern standards in 2016, our 30-acre community campus is complete with forested greenbelts, ponds, and pristine walking paths. We’ve kept the integrity of classic American Craftsman design wherever possible, as you’ll notice upon entering our awe-inspiring dining and social hall with its high pillars, wainscoting panels, colonial windows, and exposed-wood beamed ceilings. We welcome residents 65 and older — and their cats, too! Email or call us today to see if Breakwater is right for you.

The Normandy

My aunt has lived at the”Breakwater Apartments” now for seven months. The staff there is wonderful. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. My aunt has a lovely apartment which she enjoys (at the age of 94.). The entire complex has been newly renovated. It was tastefully done and is very inviting. The dining room is quite nice and the food is delicious. There are many amenities, many activities. It is also conveniently located, easily accessible. I can’t say enough about “ The Normandy”. My aunt is very happy there and my family is pleased that her needs are met there.

We really love it here

This is a really great retirement facility. There is a homey atmosphere when you walk in. The people who work here are so welcoming. They made what could have been an awkward experience a wonderful one. We really love it here!

It's been great so far. We are pretty happy with them. I haven't had any complaints at this time. It's kept nice and clean, and all the people are nice. It fit our needs and our budget, and it seems to be working out fine.
