An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you donít need the round-the-clock medical care and supervision of a nursing home. A nursing home may be a good choice if you need a higher level of care temporarily after a hospitalization, but itís anticipated you will be able to return to home or another facility after a period of time. Assisted living comes by many names, such as residential care, board and care, or group homes. A retirement home differs from a nursing home primarily in the level of medical care given. Assisted living emerged in the 1990s as an eldercare alternative on the continuum of care for seniors for whom Independent living is no longer appropriate but who do not need the 24-hour medical care provided by a nursing home. Some facilities provide minor help with medications as well. Independent Living Communities enable residents to live as independently as possible, while providing certain services and social activities.

We are a senior couple, together for over 50 years. We have been thinking it's time to make a change - take a rest from cooking, housecleaning, mowing the lawn. It's time to get to think about us. We visited Shannon Oaks in Victoria and met its friendly, concerned staff, saw the roomy accommodations, and had a great tea there. We like the feel of it - feels like home.

We are not fond of (nor can we afford) what we teasingly refer to as "cruise ship" retirement homes - these are the big, opulent ones with vast halls, where you can get lost on the way back from the bathroom, where, if you stop to talk to someone, you may likely never meet them again! They have all the mod cons, every conceivable activity, everything of everything and there's enough room to swing many cats.

Shannon Oaks has lots of activities, certainly all the activities we think we need. Shannon Oaks feels intimate, homely, inviting, comfortable, like home. It's bright, modern, colourful, without seeming opulent. When my choir sings there, the residents come to talk to us, are so much fun, so friendly. Yes, Shannon Oaks represents good value for money. We are not particularly religious but we embrace the Christian values of forgiveness and love - who wouldn't?
