I would recommend it. All the staff have been kind and caring to my loved one and the owner has been accommodating to him in his requests. My loved one's answer to me when I ask if he has any complaints is a very positive, "not in this place". He is enjoying all the attention he is given and all the activities he participates in. Which, of course, delights me and his extended family.

Shady Oaks Assisted Living Review
It was a difficult decision to place my Mom in an assisted living facility. However, Shady Oaks has proven to be an outstanding facility under the watchful care of its owner [name removed]. [name removed] works tirelessly to ensure a safe and secure environment. He and his dedicated staff are extremely compassionate to the needs of each resident while keeping family members apprised on the welfare of their loved one. I would highly recommend Shady Oaks for your special loved one. You will be glad you did.

exceptional place
In looking for a place to make my dads last home, my siblings and I didn't hesitate picking Shady Oaks after meeting Tyson and his staff. They immediately became family and went above and beyond to make the transition for my dad coming from the Cape. Even though he was only there 2 weeks, he loved it, loved the staff and particularly loved his time spent with [name removed], talking about being in the service, their experiences at Yale and so much more. He was happy and loved his new room and everyone there. I can never repay their kindness but will always remember them all fondly for treating my dad like their own family. I would recommend them very highly.

Cozy and caring environment
We looked at many facilities for my 95 year old Mom. When we visited Shady Oaks we immediately felt the small, cozy and homey environment was perfect fit. It's been family owned for decades and present owner [Removed] is hands on, always present...willing to do anything for the residents. The nursing staff communicates often with us. Doctors visit regularly. No bureaucracy to get answers. Mom likes the meals and activities. Highly recommended.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Connecticut regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Connecticut regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Shady Oaks Assisted Living

Shady Oaks Assisted Living offers Studio and Semi-Private. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Shady Oaks Assisted Living 8.9 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
