Helping Your Parents
At Shannondell, we enjoy working with multi-generations and find that families appreciate having a helpful resource of information and experience.
Adult children want to know their parents are moving to a place where they’ll not only be safe, but also inspired to remain active and socially engaged. In turn, parents want to know that family members are supportive of their decision and pleased with their chosen community.
We view our job as helping families find the right fit, regardless if this turns out to be our community. Equally important, we’re mindful not to intrude while also helping to ensure any potential move is a positive experience for everyone.
A good place to start is knowing the questions we hear most often from children of prospective residents. You’ll find these, along with our answers, below.
