Each season of a person’s life can bring new celebrations, questions, and important decisions. Many seniors, and their families, wrestle with finding the best living situation for their later years. A Continuum of Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is an excellent choice with an array of benefits as outlined in the “Age Well Study” published by the Mather Institute. Shannondale, one of the south’s finest senior living communities, is a shining example of a CCRC that excels at delivering what matters most to seniors and their families.
Evaluating the magnitude of CCRC options can seem daunting. There are important essentials to consider and questions to ask.
- Is it located in a scenic, desirable area with accessible transportation?
- Is it near churches, hospitals and other important venues?
- Is the staff fully licensed and do they come across as caring?
- Are all stages of senior living included on campus? Is there a short-term rehab facility?
- What amenities and services are available?
- What are the opportunities to maintain an active lifestyle?
Among the top reasons to select a CCRC is the incredible peace that comes with knowing that a senior can easily transition between circles of care as needed, all while staying in their beloved community. Shannondale properties provide that peace of mind in a caring, serene environment chocked full of amenities and advantages.
The Shannondale spectrum of care options are coined “Circles of Care.” The Circles of Care connect seniors with others vital to their well-being, within the best match option for their current needs. Shannondale’s Circles of Care include:
This option serves those well that are looking for a private home without the yard work and need to cook. Here they will be surrounded by other active seniors and a multitude of amenities and services. There are beautiful locations in Knoxville and Maryville, TN.
This option also alleviates the stress of chores and housework. This is a best match for seniors who want to live autonomously but might need a little help to fully enjoy their life. Each resident has their own private room, with a support community and medical help nearby.
