CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Community) provide accommodations for independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing. With a plan for the future, you’ll have confidence knowing your golden years will be lived to the fullest.

"Living at Shannondale gives us time to pursue the interests that we always wanted to experience. We now have the freedom to enjoy life like we never have before. The community at Shannondale reminds me of the neighborhood I grew up in. A close community. A community where people care about each other and share a lot of laughter."

Harry and Alice Ann Moore,

Buckingham Residents


Each community is custom-tailored to fit the lifestyle of each resident. While a wide variety of services are available, residents are free to choose which ones they’d like to be a part of their lifestyle. Residents enjoy stress-free, maintenance free living in a social, friendly community. We encourage residents to create the lifestyle they want. Have the peace of mind that you have assistance or medical care available if and when you need it.
