Congratulations to our September Employee of the Month Shannon Engstrom!
"Shannon started working for us in 2019 as a nutritional services aide, and it was the best decision! Shannon is the most helpful, caring person you will ever meet. She always makes sure her job is complete before she leaves, and offers to help her co-workers too. Shannon also offers to pick up open shifts as she is able, which is a great help! She always has a smile and kind word to whomever she sees. Shannon is the most deserving of this honor,” said Nutritional Services Director Sheila Moehle.

As a resident of the assisted living you will benefit from the following nursing services:

On-Site Clinic Services
Avoid the hassle of transportation and inclement weather, as well as reduce your exposure to illness. As a resident of our assisted living, you can elect to use our on-site physician services.
We collaborated with a local medical clinic to have a physician and NP provide on-site primary care services and address concerns or medical needs that do not require a visit out to a community clinic or emergency room.
On-site visits may include exams; order writing / clarification; coordination of care; nursing direction; and referrals to heart failure clinics, anticoagulation clinics, palliative care programs, and other ancillary providers to enhance consistency of care. Outcomes may include decreased need for office visits; improved response time to medical needs; and reduced admissions to the hospital.
If you elect to use this service, the physician will become your primary medical provider. The cost of the visit is covered by your insurance or Medicare coverage (exactly the same as if you went to the clinic).
All-Inclusive Monthly Care Rate
The monthly rate includes room and board, all meals, personal care assistance, nursing services, medication administration, housekeeping, laundry services, etc. We do not have additional care levels or care points resulting in additional fees, as is common with most other assisted living providers. As a resident of Dove Healthcare - South Assisted Living, you can count on paying the same rate, regardless of the assistance you need.
All the Comforts of Home
Your private room will provide privacy and independence. You will have the opportunity to decorate your room to make it feel just like home.
- Complimentary cable and TV, local and long distance phone service with phone, WiFi, microwave, and refrigerator
- Wheelchair accessible bathroom
- Personal heat and A/C controls
- If needed, ask about an optional fully furnished room
Additional Living Options

Just want to test the waters of assisted living? Our short stay option is also a great opportunity for someone not quite ready to commit to a long-term stay. Call our assisted living director for details.
