A Continuing Care Retirement Community: Your Plan for the Future

When considering a move to a senior living community, it’s important to find a community that provides the lifestyle desired with the conveniences and amenities you want.

Hear from the folks who know Luther Crest best.

"I am a resident here at Luther Crest independent living for the past year. My husband came with me but wound up in Memory Care after a bout with Covid. The care he is receiving is important to our family. The staff is very giving and respectful and meets all his needs. He seems to enjoy the food and he does take part in some of the activities. Thank you!!!!!!!!"
- Anne Mason
"My mom was recently IP for a few weeks at this Rehab and she loved this place. Her nurse, Diane, was amazing. She was so friendly with my mom. She loved so many of the people who gave her care. She was in 3 nursing homes in the last year and this is the only one she didn't want to leave. Her care was top-notch. She actually was progressing from the therapy for the first time. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants the best for the ones they love!"
- Holly Anne
"I just wanted to take a moment to comment about the wonderful care my grandmother receives at Luther Crest! She is very happy there and it makes me happy to see her happy and well taken care of! Thanks to wonderful staff who seems to be under the direction of an energetic and caring director!"
