Residents and non-residents are attracted to both the quality of care and comfort afforded by the resort-style environment. So, while Rehab at Shannondell is a new physical structure on the Shannondell campus, their licensed therapists and board certified physicians have been helping patients to recover well and return strong for years. With Rehab at Shannondell now serving the therapy and long-term living needs of patients of all ages, The Meadows at Shannondell focuses solely on providing personal care and memory care services.
