Our Story


Dove Estates Senior Community is locally owned and family inspired community.

John Dugan built Dove Estates retirement home without ever dreaming he would be one of its first residents.

But after suffering a stroke during the completion stages of its development, John found himself in need of the services it offered and moved into the home with his wife, Marilyn.


John and Marilyn's daughters, who make up five of their ten children, are the owners of Dove Estates. They wanted to create a place that focused on providing great care in a stimulating environment filled with warmth and purpose. A place to provide intimate care in a beautiful modern community with all of the amenities and services that you could think of.

Recently, one of those daughters, Jill Steiner, the managing partner at Dove Estates, joined Experience Care’s LTC Heroes podcast to discuss building a culture of family with staff and residents. She also shared how she and her team go the extra mile and pay attention to the little things, like menu options, that make a big difference in the lives of community members.

Steiner is part of a team that ensures that all aspects of operations are handled here in the facility with 'hands-on" attention from the owners who are compassionate about providing for the resident's every need. They continue to look for ways to improve the services and environment to provide a superior quality of life for the residents. 

Dove Estates Senior Community is an extension of family providing great care and great service.
