BLACKSHEAR Retirement Villas

About us

Blackshear Retirement Villas residents enjoy affordable personal care and services in a comfortable, home-like environment. Blackshear is designed for individuals who are no longer able to live in an independent living environment but do not require daily nursing care. Help is available for activities of daily living including bathing, dressing, meals, and housekeeping, depending on individual needs.

Who We Are

Blackshear is a 12-suite personal care community with 24-hour watchful oversight. All suites open into our garden atrium. Our beautiful bird aviary, complete with Society Finches, provides respite and relaxation for residents and family alike.

Our staff of caregivers, including certified nursing assistants (CNAs), helps residents with daily living activities, provides three meals a day, and coordinates numerous activities to engage and enlighten residents.

We welcome residents who can still manage most of their own needs, such as getting dressed, walking to meals, and more. We do not provide adult daycare; rather, all of our residents live here.

What we do

Help is available for daily living activities, including bathing, dressing, meals, and housekeeping, depending on individual needs.

A vast array of activities includes bingo games, shopping trips; birthday celebrations; religious programs; exercise programs; singing and piano, crafts, eating at area restaurants, field trips to shop or visit out-of-town destinations, visits to the library or local hair salon; and more. We can also arrange for transportation to doctor’s appointments if the family is unable to do so.
