Spotlight on Unique Senior Care Communities

By Michelle Seitzer / Posted on 25 July 2011

Although each senior care facility – be it assisted living, independent living, memory care, continuing care, or something in between – is unique in its own way based on the staff, residents, care philosophy, design, and location that comprise it, some communities are especially distinguished.

Cedar Mountain Commons in Newington, Connecticut, is one of those senior homes. This senior living community opened in 2001 as one of the few facilities that are supported by a local hospital. Owned by Hartford Hospital and Jefferson House, the hospital’s skilled nursing and rehab center, Cedar Mountain Commons offers independent living and assisted living apartments and services in a stately New England-style building.

In Vancouver, British Columbia, Tapestry at the O’Keefe-Arbutus Walk provides assisted living and independent living that is “intelligently designed for seniors with high expectations.” Owned and operated by Leisure Care, this distinctive community is part of a planned neighborhood in a desirable section of the city.

Silverado Senior Living’s Belmont Hills is a pet-friendly community situated on 13 acres of wooded land in the bay area of Belmont, California. Belmont Hills specializes in the care of Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

Last month, we highlighted a unique home-like approach to assisted living; read more about Dave and Sheila White’s Illinois-based Neighbors Next Door here at SeniorsforLiving. Also, check out these three special assisted living communities, profiled in May.
