About the facility Shangri-La

Surrounded by manicured lawns, the tree-shaded yards of Shangri-La Senior Living lie on the quiet suburban outskirts of Baltimore in Ellicott City. Shangri-La has spacious, maintenance-free homes and provides an array of amenities to help residents enjoy their highest level of independence. The community’s dining room, daily shared meals, party room, and outdoor garden and patio are just a few of the things that define Shangri-La’s warm and welcoming community.

Services and Amenities

The family oriented, supportive community at Shangri-La provides high quality services and amenities. Residents can enjoy socializing with friends and peers during meals in the spacious dining room, and can catch up on all the day's events in the TV room. The beauty salon and barber shop help keep everyone looking sharp, so they can look their best for events and celebrations in the party room! Those who prefer to rejuvenate privately can find a book in the library or stroll about the garden and patio area.

For individuals who like to get out and about, there are a number of shopping and dining options, as well as exciting attractions, within minutes of Shangri-La. Historic downtown, which is on the National Register of Historic places, lies in the Patapsco River...

We are very happy it, but still room for improvement

Just like everybody else they are struggling with staffing, so right now the activities are pretty limited which is also because of the covid restrictions. Also the residents and our loved one are having some issues with the selection and quality of the meals. However the staff members there are very god, very friendly, super helpful and are trying their best.

Positive experience

We chose Shangri-La mainly because of the value for the money. They do not have a lot of activities going on right now, but that is just covid related. My aunt really enjoys the food that is prepared. Our experience has been what we expected it to be and we would recommend them.

Clean Property!!

I had recently taken a tour of this community for my loved one and I have no complaints of how things had went. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions that I had for them. I liked the open floor plan and thought they had a nice selection of amenities for the residents. I personally just thought they did not have the wow factor that I had saw in other places I looked at for my mother.

Very impressed with the staff. They made Mom feel welcome alleviated any concerns about her well being. The atmosphere was warm and inviting without trying to look like a 5 star hotel. We left there asking them to contact us when a vacancy opened up. We are presently in no rush.

Outstanding Friendliness and Cooperation

My sister has been in a few assisted living facilities but none has been better than Shangri La. The staff is outstanding in their friendliness, cooperation, knowledge and willingness to help without complaint. My sister said she has never been more comfortable and relaxed. Her blood pressure has never been better. We are very happy to have found Shangri La.

My mother is on a certain medication which requires monitoring and the nursing staff there do a wonderful job and keep me updated. They have fun activities for the residents and the food is good.

He was a happy resident

Coming from a bad nursing home situation, we had no idea if my husband could thrive and be able to manage in an assisted living environment. But the whole experience was much better than expected. We were very pleased with the food. The opportunity to join my husband for meals and mass made both of us very happy. The Thanksgiving celebration was lively; our entire family was invited to come which gave us a chance for all of us to be together for the holiday. [Removed] (I think that was her name) gave extra special care and my husband adored her. The chef was always so accommodating. I would consider going there myself when my time comes for that decision.

Coming Home

My dad lived here for the last couple of years of his life. He had been somewhere else and was so unhappy. Coming here was like coming home for him and his spirits soared. We were so blessed to have found such a loving home for him and he remained peaceful during his time there, After he passed, the staff continued to treat us like family when we attended the father's day Sunday service there. They gave him and a friend of his a wonderful tribute and gave us comfort and love.

Death Trap

No star. Horrors upon horrors. Please don't put anyone here that can't fend for themselves. I laid awake every night afraid of what would happen in case of fire as we were locked in and our call bells were never answered. I had to scream for help if my husband fell- they would just shut our door and tell us to shut up. My medicine count was often wrong, and our last day there, we were both overmedicated which put us in the hospital, then rehab and set us both back physically and emotionally. We are both now in terrible shape as a result and will probably not recover to our prior condition I have reported them to the fire department, police department,, dept on aging, the ombudsman and was aware of the mal treatment and who also reported it and the attorney general. I haven't heard back from anyone and it had been over two months. The assisted living situation and nursing home situation in Maryland is a disgrace. We have been in many- this one is the worst. They take your money and abandon you unless you fight to be taken care of, and not everyone can. The staff will talk about you as if you were already dead. We miss meals, showers, activities, etc because they forget about us My only contact with the outside world is my phone, which is often placed out of reach. I have been threatened constantly - if I complain to anyone they will throw us out. We are out now- via the hospital and a new "home". I pray for those left behind at this house of horrors.
