Shelby Farms Senior Living

Shelby Farms Senior Living opened in April of 2022 to provide an amenity-rich, integrated senior lifestyle community to the rapidly growing city of Shelbyville, Ky., about 20 miles outside Louisville. This beautiful single-story, 65,000-square-foot facility offers 79 private-pay units for personal care and memory care. Residents have access to a wide array of high-end amenities, including a fitness center and salon, all at an affordable price.

Shelby Farms Senior Living

DMK saw an opportunity to build a new, middle-market personal care and memory care facility in Shelbyville, Ky., a rapidly growing town of about 17,000 in the Greater Louisville area. Our extensive company experience allowed us to lead all facets of the project lifecycle, from site selection to building construction.

The project leveraged one of DMK’s premier middle-market prototype buildings that have been thoughtfully designed and iterated to allow for operational efficiency without compromising an exceptional resident lifestyle. Additionally, the building design incorporates energy-efficient designs that promote sustainability. Shelby Farms offers a life-enriching home environment, at an affordable price, that includes high-end amenities such as:

  • Bright, spacious senior apartments
  • Restaurant-style dining
  • Café/Bar
  • Spa, salon, and barbershop
  • Fitness and wellness center
  • Resource Center
  • Beautiful outdoor courtyards

DMK’s team finished the project on time and on budget. Shelby Farms was able to pre-lease the community to near 40% occupancy upon opening, which is a true testament to the need for senior living in the Shelbyville market. The community continues to grow census rapidly, and Shelby Farms is on track to be a very successful project from start to finish.
