Living Care Lifestyles and local partners celebrated the groundbreaking of Quail Park at Shannon Ranch, a new active senior living community in northwest Visalia.
“Our goal is to make sure we are providing our community with what it is looking for—living communities for active seniors,” said Denis Bryant, CEO of Living Care Lifestyles.
The event took place on Sep.7 at the Quail Park at Shannon Ranch Community’s future site at the intersection of Demaree Street and Flagstaff Avenue. 70 community members were in attendance.
To honor the participation of its local partners, Living Care Lifestyles will make contributions to the Tulare County Deputy Sheriff’s Association and the Visalia Fox Theatre Foundation. Each group will receive a $5,000 donation.
“We are pleased to see the outpouring of community support at the groundbreaking,” Bryant said, “and to be able to recognize these two organizations for all the great work they do in our community.”
Kaweah Delta Health Care District, Shannon Senior Care, LLC and BTV Senior Housing, LLC have all partnered with Living Care to open Quail Park at Shannon Ranch.
Quail Park at Shannon Ranch will offer independent living as well as a memory care wing for seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and/or dementia. Plans for this project call for 120 rooms with a capacity for 140 residents. When fully occupied the community expects to employ approximately 120 staff members.
Quail Park at Shannon Ranch will include a bistro, pub, dining room with private dining options, a pool-fitness-wellness area, sports den and activity center, a 24-seat movie theater, library and meditation areas, a virtual game room, outdoor patios on three levels and trail access to Shannon Parkway.
Kaweah Delta’s financial contribution to the project is being made through the Bettie Quilla Fund at the Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation.
The goal for the project is to open in early 2019.
