The Shenandoah House is a beautiful residence nestled in a tranquil, wooded area on the Augusta Health campus. It is designed for patients no longer able to live at home without assistance or who have no suitable caregiver at home, for end-of-life care.
It has a homelike atmosphere with four private bedrooms and bathrooms, gardens designed to stimulate the senses, greenery year-round, an inviting kitchen, family areas, a fireplace, a piano, and more. This house will offer a home away from home for an expected 85 to 100 patients each year. The Shenandoah House is proud to be able to offer to the community residents a warm, supportive environment when unable to remain in their own home for the final stage of life.
