Secure, Positive and
Engaging Environment.

Located on the Schooner Estates Senior Living Community campus, the 48,000 square foot building is nestled within 8 scenic acres and includes a circadian lighting system designed to mimic the natural light of day, with custom apartment door colors, finish and design features that have been carefully incorporated to help create a positive and engaging environment that will empower residents to live as independently as possible. Each of the three neighborhoods has secured, outside garden spaces. The Peaks activity room and the Multi-purpose room are equipped with hearing loop systems built in that allow residents to hear what is going on directly through their hearing aids.

The entrance to our Memory Care community within Schooner Estates opens freely from the outside, and requires a code to exit. This provides security for our residents who may become confused and attempt to leave. Beyond the Memory Care area, the outside doors at Schooner Estates require a key for entry, though may be opened freely from the inside. The exception is the door to the front desk area, which is unlocked during the hours that the front desk is staffed, from 8 AM to 6PM, seven days a week.
