A New Day

Gull Creek is celebrating 30 years of providing housing on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. From independent and assisted living apartments to memory care neighborhoods and short-term stays, discover why Gull Creek consistently ranks as the top senior housing option in our area.



Gull Creek
offers residents and their families a relaxed environment and a variety of retirement lifestyle offerings, including everything from assisted living apartments to a safe and secure memory care neighborhood and short-term stays.

Located in historic Berlin, Maryland – Gull Creek is close to shopping, superior care and cultural attractions, plus beautiful beaches and state parks, including Assateague Island and its famous wild ponies.

We provide experienced senior care at our community with an active and vibrant lifestyle. Assisted living offers the help you need to maintain the independence you desire, and we have a memory care neighborhood where residents can enjoy all of the benefits of Gull Creek while living in a safe and secure environment.

The emphasis at our community is on helping each resident maintain their health, wellness, dignity and independence.

Gull Creek consistently ranks as one of the area’s top communities. Coastal Style Magazine named Gull Creek the top Worcester County assisted living provider in 2017 and 2018, and The Metropolitan Magazine ranked Gull Creek as the top assisted living community from Berlin to Ocean City last year.

Affordable Assisted Lifestyle Community

Heritage Woods combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, support services and opportunities for residents to enjoy the companionship of friends and neighbors and to participate in social events and programs.

Included in the surprisingly affordable monthly fee are three restaurant-style meals daily, plus snacks, housekeeping and laundry services, health monitoring, nursing assessments, help with medications and assistance with activities of daily living. Certified nursing assistants, who work under the direction of our licensed nursing staff, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For those who do not have the financial resources to afford the monthly fee, a financial assistance program is available. Older adults who are on Medicaid or who only receive Social Security benefits can qualify for residency.

The Affordable Assisted Lifestyle Apartments at Heritage Woods of Centralia are designed for adults 65 and older of all incomes who need some help to maintain their independence. They offer a wonderful alternative to struggling alone at home or to skilled nursing care, especially for those who cannot afford private pay assisted living.

Heritage Woods of Centralia is fully certified by the State of Illinois and is part of the Illinois Supportive Living Program.
