Plainville CT Assisted Living

Shady Oaks Assisted Living in Bristol CT is a short 11 minute drive from downtown Plainville. Shady Oaks was the 2nd assisted living facility in all Connecticut. For many years, it was the only Connecticut assisted living home near Plainville. Now, there are three other Connecticut senior care homes in or near Plainville (Victorian Gardens/Belle Marie, Atria Landing, The Orchards), but Shady Oaks is still unique.

Before my parents built Shady Oaks Assisted Living, they grew up in Plainville. My mother’s family moved to Plainville from Spadra, Arkansas. As a girl, my mother and her friend rode their bicycles to the downtown Dairy Queen, which is still there today. My father’s family moved to Plainville from Chapman, Maine. My parents met at Plainville High School. They married at age 20 in a little church on Broad Street. They had three boys, and all three learned to swim at the Plainville YMCA. In 1974, my parents moved to Unionville, then they built Shady Oaks. In January 2018, after 53 proud years of marriage with my mother, my father passed away. We miss him.
