Campus Wish List

It not only takes the work of our dedicated staff, board, and volunteers to help run Shady Lane, it also takes the support of the generous community. We appreciate every dollar and we want you to know where it’s going.

Our Campus Wish List includes programs we’d like to see implemented with volunteers or sponsorship, campaigns to raise money for large items around campus, and items for everyday use for our residents. 

You can view our Wish List here.  

For Wish items in prompt need, watch our Facebook page. 

A Caring Path

The gardens at Shady Lane, no matter what season, are one of the most enjoyable features we offer residents.

We are enhancing the gardens with a wider sidewalk, edged with engraved red paving stones, to make them more wheel-chair accessible. The engraved bricks are one way to honor your loved one’s memory.

A brick can be purchased, inscribed, and prominently displayed with their names. This is a way to commemorate your loved one’s life in a place we all care for and love. 


People volunteer for a number of different reasons, ranging from a desire to help others to learning new skills. At Shady Lane, one of the most common reasons we hear is that someone offered a helping hand when they needed it and now they are ready to give back. Here are a few ways you can make a difference.

  • Walking Companion
  • Bingo
  • Escort Residents to and from Mass
  • Entertainment
  • Escort for Large Events
  • Weekend Activities
