Our resident annex contains two levels with a total of 14 private and semi-private rooms, all with private half baths. Each floor also contains large shower rooms and common sitting/reading rooms with TV and easy access to outdoor porches.
Bedrooms can be furnished entirely with one’s own possessions or Shard Villa can supply whatever is needed. Personal furniture, musical instruments, artwork, etc., are encouraged. It is important for residents to be surrounded by familiar, loved items whenever possible. We encourage strong and close relationships with family members of our residents to allow us to tend to their loved one’s personal special needs and preferences.
Residents enjoy three family-style home cooked meals per day in the mansion’s original dining room. This original room boasts an arch framed, floor to ceiling bay window, that opens out onto the broad southern lawns. Sunny and bright, this room is a resident favorite for other activities as well throughout the day. Additional snacks and tea time in the afternoon ensure that the residents are always able to enjoy the delicious offerings from our kitchen and social time with others.
Our residents also enjoy the main front parlor directly connected to the dining room through massive 3" thick by 10 1/2-foot-tall, sliding arch top doors. This room is used as a central gathering area for residents to watch TV, play games, do puzzles as well as group activities such as yoga and musical performances. This room also boasts a large arch topped bay window as well as a beautiful marbleized slate fireplace. With its extensive beautiful woodwork and murals, this room offers a warm and inviting space to relax and visit with friends.
