Welcome to Shady Palms

Welcome to Shady Palms.org! Shady Palms is a 98 bed Assisted Living Facility that was built in 1978 for the sole purpose of meeting the needs of the elderly here in Tampa.

Shady Palms is a family owned and operated facility that strives for each resident to feel at home here, as many other elderly people have since 1978. Our family is a family that loves, a family that cares, a family that strives to provide you with emotional support, activities, assistance with personal care, and hopefully, many additional years of enjoyment in life.

If you become a new resident at our facility, it is our goal for you to enjoy a facility that promotes a philosophy of "Not only adding years to life, but adding life to years."

We have provided for your convenience a link to an 1823 Health Assessment Form here for whichever facility you decide on. The state of Florida requires this filled out 60 days before admission or 30 days after admission. Shady Palms requires this form to be completed before admission.

Shady Palms is not affiliated with any religious organization and is not a nursing home. Therefore, we are not licensed to provide complex, 24 hour nursing services.
