Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site

The convenience of Shads Landing's on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.

Members from the outside community frequently come in to utilize our salon. Our beautician holds flexible hours for your convenience.

Fitness Right at Home

Shads Landing residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.

Shads Landing offers on-site physical therapy, occupational therapy, and access to a speech/language pathologist. We offer ball dancing, Tai Chi and yoga, and a walking club.


Let Us Serve You

Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Shads Landing's dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.

Our chef has won Holiday's Regional Chef of the Month award three times. His beef and barley soup is a resident favorite. He holds weekly "chef chats" to make sure residents are satisfied, and he adjusts cooking techniques and menus as needed.


Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community

There’s so much to explore in the Charlotte area and Shads Landing makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.

Our residents enjoy visiting the University of North Carolina at Charlotte's Botanical Gardens, Childress Winery, and Lake Norman for boat rides.

A "lunch bunch" visits local restaurants by resident request.

Life is Never Boring

Shads Landing's comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.

During the summer, our residents enjoy gardening in the community garden.

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Shads Landing. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Residents take their furry friends to our dog park. We even have a pond where residents can enjoy fishing.


Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

Shads Landing is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi. We also offer a Wii console, movie theater, and viewfinder for small text.

Our residents have all their technology questions answered during "Tech Tuesdays," when our resident experience coordinator assists them with technology needs.

Once a month, volunteers from outside the community come in to assist our residents with their technology needs.

Travel and Adventure Is Available

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Lend a Helping Hand

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and help them feel comfortable in their new home.

We host school supply drives for local schools, and enjoy visits from the Girl Scouts and Elevation Church.
