For 2+ months, 19 caregivers and I lived and worked in our home. This sacrifice kept our residents safe through our local COVID surge.
Also, to help pay extra appreciation to our “bubble” staff, I spent $250,000+ from my savings, and charitable donors gave $215,000+.
Thank you to our heroic on-site caregivers and donors!

My parents are pioneers in seniors care. They began caring for seniors in 1969 and built Shady Oaks in 1976. Shady Oaks Assisted Living was the 2nd licensed assisted living home in Connecticut.
We excel at long-term senior care. Seniors stay with us for many years. They stay even as their needs increase. We help many residents with advanced dementia, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, and those recovering from falls or strokes. We have deep experience with hospice comfort care.
We also offer respite care. For days or weeks, seniors stay with us for rehabilitation, caregiver vacations, or home remodeling projects. Others use respite as a test-run for a longer term stay.
We provide strong nursing senior care in a cozy and loyal home. 11 of my family members lived happy years here. My mother might soon need our care.
