The newest community in premier assisted living and memory care will be making its way to Town and Country. Stonecrest Senior Living will be opening its next location on Woods Mill Road in early 2017, and the community’s groundbreaking took place on July 7.
Executive director Linda Iken-Robertson says this community is going to be one-of-a-kind, and will be inspired by the warmth and prominence of the Town and Country area. The elegant, upscale community will feature a variety of outdoor living spaces, a bistro, a fitness center, a theater and more. Iken-Robertson notes that residents will enjoy a full calendar of activities and outings, along with an award-winning dining program.
“With Dining by Design, you can get meals at any time of day,” she says. “Meals aren’t limited to certain hours of the day.”
In addition, residents will enjoy a program called Vibrant Life that has seven core components for a more-balanced life.
“We want this to feel more like a home, not just a community,” Iken-Robertson notes.
At Stonecrest, residents don’t have to worry about utilities or housekeeping since such services are included, and staff members are available 24 hours a day. They also have a lifeline included, which “gives families comfort knowing someone will be right there for their loved one if needed,” Iken-Robertson says.
The new community at Town and Country will comprise 60 private apartments in assisted living, including studio suites, one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites. In addition, there will be 26 suites within a specially designed memory-care neighborhood.
“Care can be put in place as needed,” Iken-Robertson says. “We build a plan to meet your needs. Our residents can live as independently as needed, and we also offer memory care.”
Stonecrest of Town & Country will have a founders club, and the first 15 people who sign up for apartments with the community are going to help mold the building itself.
“This is a chance for them to help make the community what they want it to be,” Iken-Robertson says. “They also get $3,000 to spend in the community however they want. Being a part of [the founders club] is huge.”
The community will be similar to Stonecrest at Clayton View in Richmond Heights, but will be tailored more to meet the style of the Town and Country surroundings. Iken-Robertson says the qualities will be the same, but each community is unique.
“That’s what I like about our developer, NorthPoint Development. They want [the communities] to fit right in with their chosen location and be part of the neighborhood,” Iken-Robertson says. “We have so much to offer to our residents, and we have fun while taking care of people. It makes everything else fall into place.”
