Our Tour Experience

I thought The Timbers was wonderful. Our tour was really good, and everybody was friendly and very down-to-earth.

Good place for loved ones

From our understanding the meals are good, and they are still doing what they can when it comes to the activities. We do think it is a good place for our loved one, but it is extremely expensive. However, we still would recommend The TImber's with out a doubt to others.

The Staff was very friendly. It is impressive that mist of the staff has been there since The Timbers opened 16 years ago. The rooms were nice. The food was delicious.

Location Is Perfect Very Close To Family

We liked this community for a few reasons. Mom is familiar with the area it's close to both myself and my sister. Both my parents are here and they are doing well. They are adjusting and slowly starting to meet people and make some friends and do some of the activities. The food is pretty good no complaints. The staff is very friendly and nice. The price fit well within our budget and they offered independent living with a little assistance which was important to my dad. I would recommend this community.

I really liked this place. It seemed light and bright and the residents appeared happy. The basement facilities with ballroom and dance floor a plus. The dining room was lovely. Did not eat the food but the menus appeared extensive for a senior facility. Highly recommend. The units were smaller but the overall facility made up for that with a large common space on each floor in which a resident could entertain company.

As most of the reviews state...The Timbers is a GREAT senior community. The staff, activities, entertainment, and building/grounds are top notch. My mom has lived there over a year and loves it! It's like being part of a big family.

A Fine Tour

I had a fine tour of this community. It is a nice community, and from what I saw everything looked well-kept. The staff was kind, and it was a nice experience overall. I did find another community that suited our needs better, but my tout went well of this community.

A little noisy!

The Timbers of Shorewood was okay. It was a bit too noisy for my loved one, so it was not our favorite facility.

As a visitor and business owner I have been in and out of the Timbers for 13 years. They continue to amaze me with the care and activities they provide. When you are in the area drop by for lunch in their cafe and see for yourself.

Highly Recommend

Great assisted living place for seniors who are interested in either short term or long term stay. The timbers puts on many events for holidays and other occasions like senior prom, which is an amazing opportunity for the seniors.

I just enrolled my brother in this facility and everything about it was great. My brother loves the activities, the food, his one bedroom apartment, and the staff. Everyone has been friendly to my brother and I. This was very important to us for my brother has never lived alone.

Top quality choice

I work with the staff, closely in other endeavors. Their commitment to quality of service and truly making the Timbers "home" is unsurpassed. Seniors can make no better choice for assisted living.

Great place to live

The Timbers of Shorewood is a great place to bring any seniors who need a little extra help, but still want to have fun and socialize. You can try it out for a short term lease to see if it is right for your senior.
