My name is Shannon East. I am very excited to be the Executive Director at Lakeshore Senior Living. I have worked in Senior Living for over 20 years. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University. I have had the pleasure of creating lasting relationships and memories with the residents and associates at each community I have led. I believe in providing the best customer service and leading a team to make your new home a place where you create memorable friendships and be very proud of.

I have been married to my husband Tim for 24 years. We have two college age children, Nathan and Noelle. When I'm not working, I enjoy going up to our cottage on Higgins Lake and spending time with my friends and family. I enjoy the beach, vacations, and reading. I have 2 dogs Toby and Titan that I love to spoil. I love ice cream, chocolate and sea food.

My first job was certified nurse assistant at Sunrise Senior Living in Rochester Hills, after that I worked within various senior living communities and hospitals throughout college. In 2004 I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Resources from Oakland University and began my career in HR. In 2011, I earned my Master’s degree in Human Resources from Central Michigan University. I have worked in HR in a variety different industries but I am most excited to get back to my roots working with seniors. I have 2 children a 1 year old girl and a 5 year old boy and I will be celebrating my 10 year marriage anniversary in September. I am looking forward to working with the Lakeshore staff and seniors.

This year on October 21st the National Community Pharmacists Association, along with their sponsor Consumer Reports, will be rolling out a brand-new wellness holiday, National Check Your Meds Day. On this day consumers are encouraged to bring their medications and supplements to their local pharmacies for “brown bag” medication reviews.

As the weather starts to change we are reminded that fall is in the air. To some, fall reminds us of crisp cool air, warm delicious drinks and the color change. To others the word fall might mean something entirely different. According to the National Council on Aging (NCOA), every 11 seconds an older adult is seen in an emergency department for a fall-related injury.

How exciting it is to report that a major magazine is echoing my message of many years. The term anti-aging is out, and the notion of aging well is in! Allure Magazine has announced in its latest issue that they are making a resolution to stop using the term anti-aging. They state, "changing the way we think about aging starts with changing the way we talk about aging."

I have said that embracing aging is the way to go.

Lakeshore Senior Living kicked off this summer season with their Annual Summer Fest to engage the community and current depositors! With model apartments available to tour, over 100 guests attended the Summer Fest June 22nd to enjoy music, food and to see what this new senior community is all about.

The Lakeshore team is enjoying all the excitement from the community alongside the current depositors. Currently, there are wait lists for two-bedroom lake view apartments and patio apartments.

The unique part about joining Lakeshore at the beginning is the opportunity to review the floor plan of the entire building and decide where you want your apartment to be. Have you always dreamed of seeing the lake as you sip your morning coffee? Or maybe you’ve loved baseball since you were a young child? With lake views from our second and third floor along with views of the baseball diamonds out back, our community allows your dream to become reality.

“It’s so exciting for us to see how excited our depositors are,” says Ann Campbell, Sales and Leasing Specialist at Lakeshore Senior Living. “At the event they were measuring areas within the models and talking about what color furniture they’d like to bring!”

The Lakeshore Team has one goal in their minds and hearts and that is to give the seniors moving in the best experience they possibly can. “We truly try to encourage seniors that moving into a senior living community does not mean we are taking your independence away,” says Campbell, “We want to add to your life by giving you resources and amenities within walking distance from your front door!”

With 118 independent living apartments and 22 licensed memory care units, Lakeshore has a growing list of future occupants. With Presbyterian Villages of Michigan a part of this project, the team is working together to bring wellness and excitement to the seniors next stepping stone in life!

Lakeshore Senior Living offers tours of a one-bedroom and two-bedroom model apartment Monday- Saturday. LSL is located at 28801 Jefferson Ave. (586) 218-6228. Walk-Ins Welcome.

How do you spell dynasty? I am beginning to think it’s W-E-S-T-L-A-N-D. On Friday, June 23rd, for the second straight year and fourth time in six years the Stars from the Village of Westland won the Village Victory Cup. When asked what the secret is to their winning ways, they replied it’s “the 2 p’s – practice and participation. We participate in every event with the maximum number of allowable participants and we begin practicing weeks in advance.
