Shangri-La Senior Living - OutsideIn 2004 we opened our doors in the growing community of Ellicott City and since then we have rapidly grown to become a premier assisted living community. The vision was to create an assisted living community side-by-side with a Montessori school to promote inter-generational programming between both facilities, with the hope that it would enrich the lives of both the seniors and students.


At Shangri-La Senior Living, we aim to deliver the highest level of care to our residents by promoting choice, independence, and dignity, and to continually exceed our residents’ expectations with exceptional service and an outstanding quality of life.


We care about the various wellness and assistance needs seniors have as they age. That is why at Shangri-La Senior Living we offer a wide range of services and care levels, including:

  • Independent Living
  • Assisted Living & Personal Care
  • Alzheimer’s & Memory Care
  • Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitative Care
  • Short-Term Stays & Respite Care


  • Balanced - It is important to serve the key members of our communities - residents and family members - as well as our employees. Our balanced approach promotes service to everyone involved without preceding the interests of another
  • Rooted - The roots of our organization are formed from best practices, systems, and standards. This foundation gives us stability, in addition to flexibility

  • Inspired - At Shangri-La Senior Living, we are constantly striving to be the best assisted living community in the region. This fuels inspiration for building a better environment for seniors, family members, and employees
  • Passionate - We take pride in delivering service with compassion to all of our seniors; it is at the center of all that we do


Every Care Specialist and staff member is guided by our Core Values when interacting and assisting our residents:
