Assisted Living in Northern Illinois
At our assisted living communities you get all the comforts of home with the benefits of a helping hand.
There comes a time when a loved one requires some assistance with their daily routine. Assisted Living was designed to offer help with those basic needs. At Shepherd Premier Senior Living, our Assisted Living program was created to do more than merely provide that essential care; our Assisted Living program provides the highest quality of care while nurturing a loved one’s dignity and emotional peace of mind.
Assisted living in a peaceful, rural environment
At a Shepherd Premier Senior Living home, residents are wrapped in an environment of tranquility and calm. Our homes are set in rustic rural settings in communities where people still wave friendly greetings to their neighbors and the occasional passersby.
Those living in our homes enjoy an unprecedented 1-to-5 Caregiver-to-Resident Ratio that provides the kind of intimate personal care where a loved one receives the attention they deserve and never feels lost or forgotten. That care includes healthy home-style meals to meet individual dietary requirements.

Live guilt-free knowing you've chosen a loving environment for mom or dad
When a loved one comes home to live in a Shepherd Premier Senior Living residence they join a family of no more than 10 to 16 residents. Rather than a sense of guilt, the family knows that mom and/or dad are in a place where they’ll continue to enjoy life. The atmosphere is engaging, supportive, safe and secure. The story doesn’t end here. A new chapter begins.
Is it time for Assisted Living?
So, when is it time to consider Assisted Living for mom and/or dad, or another loved one? It’s a question of whether they can continue to care for themselves or whether they need help. Help is based on the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) which are:
Continence Control: the ability to get on and off the toilet in time, and clean up after using the toilet
Dressing: the ability to dress, undress and to make appropriate wardrobe choices
Eating: The ability to feed oneself (this doesn’t necessarily include food preparation)
Personal Hygiene: this includes bathing, showering, oral care, and grooming
Transferring and Mobility: this is the ability to move oneself in and out of bed, into and out of a seated position, and the ability to walk independently
Cognition: Clarity in basic decision making related self-care
When someone is unable to perform these activities on their own, they need some assistance.
