As a first step in considering downsizing from her home, my mom and I visited Shawnee Hills. It was a wonderful experience. Wendy was kind from the moment we planned the visit through the after-visit call. While we were there, she was welcoming and gracious as if giving us a tour her own home. The community spaces were clean and being updated in places (which I appreciated, showing they keep things up), the rooms were modern and offered outdoor space, and the hallways were homey. We ran into multiple residents who were all friendly and smiling, saying hello and nice to meet you. All seemed to be in good spirits which spoke volumes to me. I appreciated all of the amenities and programming available.

Very impressed wth Shawnee Hills Senior Living. Wendy provided us with a great deal of information not only about independent livng, but also about assisted care living. We are not yet ready to take this next step to leave our home and move to an independent living facility, but when we are, we will be meeting again with Wendy to plan further. Go by and visit...nice lunch, a tour of the facility and lots of important information.

My father lives here. He's been there now for a year and a half and I wholly appreciate the careful care of the staff and all they do for him. It is so much better than a "nursing home" they have additional services for health care and it is impressive and comforting.

Wow. My mom was happy there her very first day. Shawnee Hills is like a really nice hotel with a personality all its own. She has now spent 2 weeks there and loves it. She loves the residents, facilities, staff and food. Mom now walks every day ... in the halls or outside depending on the weather. Everyone is so friendly. They put up my dad's navy uniform in the veterans display ... which my mom totally loves. My aunts and uncles really appreciated it too. Family and friends all love her room and are really glad she is there.

During my journey to find a new home for my Mother, I called and spoke to Kevin Blom at Shawnee Hills Senior Living. The moment he answered the phone, I knew I had found her home. Kevin is awesome! He is informative - patient - and just a genuine, kind person. I am sure you know what an asset he is to your company... I later met Rita, who is without a doubt an incredible person - she is so caring and does a fantastic job.I have met David Russell, who is amazing - and Donny, the Activity Director is terrific...Mother loves her new home, and we all feel very blessed to have found such an unbelievable group of people...Thanks so very much,Linda Mattox

My name is Barbara and I have lived at Shawnee Hills for over 4 and 1/2 years. Before I moved here I lived in a nice little apartment with lots of windows but for some reason got almost no sunlight. My brother and sister-in-law called it "the cave" and suggested I move into a senior community. That was the last thing I wanted to do but they pushed and pushed. Thank goodness they did! I love it here. I live on the third floor, have a nice view, a nice breeze, and lots of sunshine. The people who live here are all so nice and we are all at about the same stage in our lives. I have made some great friends and there is always something for us to do (if we so desire). There are games, card games, art classes, craft classes, trips to many interesting places, etc. The people who work here are special people. When I lost my son about six months ago, they were all right there for me. They were my family. I am so lucky to be here at this point in my life. I am happy! I would give this 5 stars except for the small problem in the dining room. There is a shortage of servers right now but they are addressing the problem and soon will have it solved.

A very serious problem with wait staff in the dining room. The food quality continues to decline. Unable to cut the meat today even with a steak knife.
