VISALIA, Calif. – Living Care Lifestyles, a national leader in senior lifestyle communities, has joined forces with local partners to open Quail Park at Shannon Ranch, a new senior community in northwest Visalia offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care.
“Our research shows there is a significant need for additional senior living facilities in the Visalia,” said Denis Bryant, CEO of Living Care Lifestyles. “Quail Park at Shannon Ranch will provide exceptional living and health services to senior residents and offer peace of mind to their families.”
Living Care Lifestyles will partner with Kaweah Delta Health Care District, Shannon Senior Care, LLC, and BTV Senior Housing, LLC, to build and operate the new community.
Plans for Quail Park at Shannon Ranch call for 120 rooms – with capacity for 140 residents – located at Demaree and Flagstaff Avenue. The community is expected to employ a staff of approximately 120, when fully occupied.
Quail Park at Shannon Ranch’s centrally located common and activity areas will be organized around classic octagon and colonnade details. Amenities will include bistro, pub, dining room and private dining options; a pool-fitness-wellness suite and fitness programs; sports den and activity center; 24-seat theater, library and mediation suites, a virtual golf area, outdoor patios on three levels, and trail access to the Shannon Parkway.
Kaweah Delta Health Care District’s capital contribution to the project is being made entirely through the Bettie Quilla Fund at the Kaweah Delta Hospital Foundation. The fund was created with donations from the late Bettie Quilla, wife of former Visalia Times-Delta publisher Ed Quilla, to support construction of a senior living project in Visalia.
Construction is slated to begin in late 2017, with the goal of opening in early 2019.
