About Us

Decrease Family Caregiver Fatigue and Senior Isolation!

With over 25 years working in Senior Care, I opened A Senior Retreat, Adult Day Services to decrease senior isolation, improve the family caregiver peace of mind and give seniors a purpose again through socialization and engagement with peers and activities.

After working in the Senior Care industry for 20+ years, I did some research on opening an Adult Day Care Center and learned that most rural communities in Indiana did not have this service and seniors were potentially doing without needed assistance. After achieving my goal to become a licensed administrator and run an assisted living community, I still had a strong desire to serve my senior neighbors in my community.

I put together a business plan and my investor helped me with the initial start-up costs. The name came from my desire to create a fun, warm, welcoming environment for seniors (Our Friends) to “retreat” while their family caregiver was at work or needed time away. Thus, A Senior Retreat, Adult Day Services came to mind.

About the Owner…

A Senior Retreat, Adult Day Services is owned and operated by Susan Lowe, long term resident of Morgan County. Susan is a licensed Residential Care Administrator and has worked in the senior health care industry for nearly 30 years in administration, sales and marketing, and business office management.

Susan’s experience includes opening of several senior communities, overseeing day-to-day operations of a large assisted living, and running a home care franchise.

Susan enjoys painting, crafts, and trying new restaurants.  She has a love of animals and owns two corgis and several goats.

Our Friends Say It Best…

“The Senior Retreat is a great place to take your loved one and know they are being cared for, while giving yourself a break to rest, relax, run errands, etc.”

Julie Stephenson

“Making friends, doing activities, keeping the soul healthy and the brain active – what more could you ask for? Thanks for pouring your heart into this, Susan Isselhardt Lowe!”

Lori Craig

“…if you worry about leaving your elderly loved ones any where, this place is the ONLY option. They are catered to with sincere care. They keep us informed of any thing involving mom’s care. Mom wasn’t thrilled with a daily care facility, at first, Now she can’t wait to get there every time she visits. She’s made some great friends. This great team has made it possible for me to have time for errands, hobbies, and return to work without worrying about our mom. Our family can’t imagine not having them partnering with us to care for mom. Great place!!!”

Marji Clark

“This place has been a huge blessing for us! My Dad (who was initially hesitant!!!) LOVES IT HERE! When he was no longer able to be home by himself when I was at work, we were at a loss on what to do. We did not want to put him in a long term care facility but I could not afford to quit my job and lose my retirement! We lucked out that “A Senior Retreat” opened the week I needed them. They provide activities that he loves, meals that he enjoys and friends to chat with! In his own word “they treat me like I’m their friend, not like a customer!” I HIGHLY recommend this place! Check it out, you won’t be sorry! Take a tour and ask Dad how he likes it!!!”

Dianna Hommel Garbers

“This place is a blessing to the community. Very nice inside with the warm atmosphere to match!”

Ginny Jones

“Susan Lowe has been committed to senior care and quality of life for those seniors her entire career. She has proven time and again the level of dedication goes deep. This new center is a culmination of her years of experience as well as her recognition of the needs of seniors and their loved ones.”

Terisa Messmer

“…it gives the loved one a chance to get out and socialize and do activities and to meet new people and make new friends.”

I work at The Waters of Martinsville which is a skilled nursing facility in town and A Senior Retreat is the PERFECT place to take your loved one should you need some time to rejuvenate and take care yourself as a caregiver. Susan and her team go above and beyond to ensure the happiness and safety of each of their friends and I PROMISE you will not be disappointed when you see the positive changes that occur in your loved one. Hands down one of the BEST programs in town!
 
 
I have worked with Susan on and off for a long time now. I could go on and on about her, but instead of doing that I will say she is simply… “THE BEST” !!! She really appreciates you and makes you feel important, whether it’s working with her or in her care ! I have been in the healthcare for approximately 20 years, as a current employee I will add that ” A Senior Retreat ” is one of the best places I have ever worked and some of the most caring people I have ever worked with !!
