Announcing: Indoor visits return at

Shady Rest Care Center!

Shady Rest Care Center in Cascade can now support indoor visitation, at all times and for all residents.

We are still being cautious and protective of our residents and their health, so we ask for your help in the following:

We have to monitor the number of visitors throughout our facility at a given time, so if you could call when you are planning to come in or upon your arrival, that would help us immensely.

When visiting, please note that you need to be screened at the front entry of our facility and wear a mask for the duration of your visit.

Finally, thank you for your cooperation over the past 12 months. We are excited to welcome you back and return to a sense of normalcy in our care center.

Please like and share to help us spread the word!

Friends and family of our residents are encouraged to continue contact with their loved ones via
🔴 Skype
🔴 Facetime
🔴 Social Media
🔴 Phone Calls

If you need help in making these arrangements, our staff is happy to assist with technology and logistics.

"We care for the people you love," and in order to protect them, we are asking your cooperation in this matter.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page and for further updates. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our Administrator, Rachel Feeney at 563-852-3277.

Who We Are

Founded in 1972, Shady Rest Care Center is located in Cascade, Iowa. It is home to seniors who place a high value on their independence, friendships, healthy lifestyle, and medical care. Our goal is to enrich the aging experience by providing opportunities for active, engaged, and purposeful living. This benefits not just our residents, but also their families, our staff, and the greater community.

"This is the most wonderful place, everyone is so friendly and kind. Therapy worked with me through my recovery, because of them I am able to go home. I tell all my friends and family I love this place, and I'm not lying!!"

-Nancy, previous resident

"Shady Rest Care Center was the last residence for our mother. She was given very loving and professional care during her entire stay.  The staff were all very supportive and compassionate to our mother.  Even mom’s stubbornness did not deter their wonderful way of caring for mom. I think mom came to think of many of the staff as her family.  They all shared in so many last moments. We are so very fortunate to have had our mother in such an excellent facility.  I have recommended and will continue to recommend Shady Rest Care Center to many friends. Thank you all for taking such wonderful care of our mother."

-Mary, daughter of previous resident.

"My stay at Shady Rest was absolutely wonderful. I got so attached to the staff I felt as if they were my own children. If I needed anything, they would help me and always took good care of me."
