    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shenandoah

    The city of Shenandoah, Iowa, is known as the childhood home of the famous singing duo, the Everly Brothers. Located in Fremont and Page counties, Shenandoah has a small-town ambiance but is just an hour's drive from Omaha, Nebraska, and two hours from metropolitan Des Moines, Iowa, and Kansas City, Missouri.

    For seniors who wish to establish residency within the area and need assistance with daily living, there are two available assisted living facilities in the city. These communities are regulated by the Iowa Health Facilities Division under the Department of Inspections and Appeals and are officially called Assisted Living Programs.
