A Little Bit About Shepherd of Crystal Lake

We all want to belong somewhere, have the support of those around us, have someone to sit with us and hold our hands or comfort us when we need it.

Shepherd homes are
unique in that we have one caregiver for every five residents to be able to provide each resident with the personalized care
and attention they need and deserve. The caregivers in Shepherd Premier Senior Living Homes all undergo Shepherd’s
own rigorous training program and full background checks to qualify to serve the families in each Shepherd home.
We welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our homes and our services and to show why our residents and families
say… This is Home.

"The very best place for my mom! Of course you have a hard time handing your loved one over to somebody else's care, but I have slept every night peacefully trusting and knowing that the caregivers have the biggest hearts and take care of your love on as if they were their own."


Our Shepherd of Crystal Lake Assisted Living Community

Shepherd of Crystal Lake offers 10 bedrooms, welcoming common living spaces, three homemade meals each day, laundry and housekeeping services, and a variety of social activities.


Combined with Shepherd’s always high quality of personalized care, this environment is all thoughtfully designed to enrich the lives of our residents.
