Cedar Village Retirement Community is commited to care. As a faith-based organization, our commitment to the community and to our elders reaches far beyond our walls.  The Shalom Center provides shelter for eligible seniors, aged 65 and over, within the walls of the existing long-term facility at Cedar Village.  We offer a safe harbor for older adults who are victims of abuse, including a full range of health care and supportive services and a coordinated system of care.

Individuals are referred to the Shalom Center by local agencies, hospitals and other organizations. Appropriate individuals will be accepted for admission for an emergency stay of 90 to 120 days.  Upon admission work is begun to plan for a safe discharge to the least restrictive alternative. Necessary services — medical, psychological, spiritual and legal — are provided throughout the stay. Individuals are encouraged to take advantage of all of Cedar Village’s services and programs.
