In early January 2018 we needed a facility for our elderly aunt. We called a "Place for Mom", and our request was sent to several facilities. We set up appointments to visit four on January 5th. Shady Oaks was our first visit. We met with the owner, Tyson Belanger. He was so impressive in a deeply intelligent yet understated way. He gave us the facts of the place without exaggeration. I am never one to make a choice without seeing all of my options but Shady Oaks was clean, bright, well taken care of and had an upbeat vibe. Mr. Belanger said they had one opening. We asked to see the room. It was a lovely pale yellow, with art on the walls and two double hung windows. Bright and beautiful! After seeing the rest of the facility and some further discussion, we made the decision to move her there (which we did two days later) and it was the best possible decision we could have made for her. And for us. She felt safe and happy there and she told us the staff was kind to her. Our aunt was one of the lucky ones - she had no cognitive dysfunction in her declining years. So when I asked her how she was, she would tell me everything in detail. We liked the fact that there were two nurses for 42 residents. The nurses were in touch with me on a regular basis and they were extremely compassionate with my aunt. They had a trained chef and the food was nutritious and tasty. In the dining room, my aunt was seated near a window with a bird feeder outside. It was perfect for her as she loved birds. There was usually a therapy dog on the premises. And they would bring in other animals for visits. My aunt loved animals and this was great for her spirits. There are large and small things that make Shady Oaks great. The small things are what truly make people happy on a daily basis. The kindness of others. The caring and compassion of all employed by Shady Oaks. The willingness to go the extra distance for those in their care. When my aunt died, Mr. Belanger came to her funeral. He gave us snapshots of her and the visiting animals. He told us again how much they cared for her and would miss her. This meant the world to us. I write very few reviews but Shady Oaks is so special, it needs to be reviewed. If you are looking for an assisted living facility, you really need to experience Shady Oaks. I cannot give it a higher recommendation!

This facility is as close to home as a resident can get. The staff is attentive and very understanding. There is not much turnover of staff which is good for the residents and very helpful to families. Whenever there is an issue the staff arrange transportation and appointments for my uncle. I couldn't be happier with the care he is getting and highly recommend Shady Oaks.

This facility is incredible! My cousin originally found it for my Uncle. Since then, we've had both of our parents reside here because of the outstanding care my Uncle received. As our parents in their mid-to-late 80's, weakened both physically and mentally, the Shady Oaks team was able to balance all aspects of their care. While the Aides are all great and display much patience and respect for the residents, the differences compared to other assisted living facilities include: 1) RN staff on premises who can bridge the communication gaps across the healthcare providers and 2) Tyson's personal involvement with every patient to ensure the best care is provided. Tyson & staff go above and beyond other facilities including providing financial recommendations and options for the residents. The facility staff-to-resident ratio is much higher than other facilities which allows for quick responses to resident or family requests. We can make the comparison to other facilities objectively because my father-in-law is geographically distanced and his care is not close to what is provided as an all-inclusive package at Shady Oaks. Finally, our parents lived their entire lives in the greater Bristol area and it was extremely important for them to remain in the area in order for their friends and other family members to visit them frequently. While we live out of state, the staff quick responses to our questions or suggestions enables us to feel like we are proximal and part of the team. It is always a leap of faith to place loved ones in the care of others - especially with all of the horror stories on the media concerning assisted living facilities - however, you will not be disappointed with the Professionalism provided at Shady Oaks. With Tyson Belanger in charge, we will have continued confidence in the facility for years to come.

Our mother had lived alone in her home of 60 years for a few years after our father's passing. One day she fell and spent several hours on the floor before being helped. At that point she decided she needed to move to an assisted living facility. We contacted 'A Place for Mom' and they provided us with information about a number of facilities. We visited a few places and she made the decision that Shady Oaks was where she wanted to go because of how much it felt like home. After moving in, she got to know Tyson and the entire staff. She always felt welcome and safe, and was very satisfied with her care and the meals they provided. Everyone there was extremely accommodating, helping whenever they could to overcome her physical limitations. Tyson was instrumental in obtaining Veterans Benefits that helped offset the cost of staying there. During the last few weeks of her life the medical staff arranged for Hospice care which provided her with additional care and comfort until she passed. Because of all this personalized care, we would highly recommend Shady Oaks Assisted Living to all elders who would like assistance and care in a very homey atmosphere.

My mother had a serious heath issue two years ago. She was discharged from the hospital to a nursing home. We didn't want her to stay there but she was unable to live on her own, but we didn't know where to go. My sister suggested Shady Oaks. We set up an appointment and went to look at it with Jean, the former owner and Debbie (nurse). They walked us through and explained what services they would provide to my mother. She moved in in July 2015. While she had an adjustment period, everyone did everything they could to make her feel welcome and comfortable. Now she is happy, safe, has gained 20 pounds with all the good meals! I can go there any time and everyone greats me and gives me a warm welcome. All the promises made to us were fulfilled. Tyson has made many improvements, added more activities and has given the family resources that have provided very helpful and taken the worry away from caring for a elderly parent. We have never once regretted our decision to make Shady Oaks her home. We would highly recommend it!!!!
