My mother has lived independently at this lovely Lifecare Community for 6 years. It is a 10 year old not for profit facility with all levels of care. Beautiful location on the ocean bluffs. Caring staff and all activities and transportation provided along with one lovely dining room meal a day.

My mother has lived here since 2001. She and my dad moved there and had a 2 bedroom apartment. They really enjoyed living there, it's a lovely place with superior amenities. When my dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2004 my mom became his full-time caregiver. In 2009, while battling Parkinson's-related dementia he moved to the assisted living section. This was a wonderful facility and provided what he needed. However, when he became uncontrollable and fell he was put into the skilled nursing unit. Piper Shores does not have a memory care/dementia unit so his care was quite problematic. He ended up dying in hospice from a CDif infection in November of 2009. A long and frustrating battle for he, my mom and my brother and I. My mom still lives in Piper Shores.
