Muriel Shea, 2018, age 92

Casa Muriel was inspired by my mom Muriel Shea (b. 1926- ) and is taking shape as an Antigua-based cooperative senior living center with daily personal assistance, medical attention, and all the comforts of living in a fully appointed home.

From December 2018 to February 2020, I spent nearly every day with my mother in Rhode Island at her independent, then assisted living, then rehabilitation centers. From art classes and physical therapy to hospital admissions and advance directives, I was there by her side, listening, discussing, reading and learning everything possible about the ways we could enhance her quality of life, from the no-nonsense nurses and senior care professionals.

To achieve a productive communal home and successful senior care community, we need to work together. Let’s put our experience and contacts to good use and duplicate that high-quality low-stress senior lifestyle that my mother enjoyed, here in Antigua Guatemala… but with volcano views and tropical gardens.

As they say, “It takes a village”, and you are part of my village.

Lori… and Muriel


Call to Action
Investing in Those Who Make Guatemala a Better Place

In Guatemala, the demand is increasing for an active retirement home and a senior health services center for our older foreign residents. According to the United Nations, “Globally, the population aged 65 and over is growing faster than all other age groups.” 

Investing in a high-demand industry with a substantially growing market is not only a smart financial move, but the right thing to do for our community. Casa Muriel offers attractive opportunities for large and small investors.
