The Piper Shores lifecare retirement community offers a unique combination of services, onsite activities, and amenities that provide residents the opportunity to decide how they want to live. Residents choose between independent living cottages and apartments.

Our independent living cottages are generous in size, with a range of features including full kitchens, vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, garages and ample storage space.indipendent-living-2
