HOUSTON, TX–Building a Belmont Village Senior Living community in Orange County, long at the top of the 22-year-old company’s wish list, has now become a reality. Belmont Village Senior Living will celebrate the opening of its 29th community – its 13th in California at 300 Freedom Lane in Aliso Viejo on Saturday and Sunday, February 9 and 10, from noon to 4 pm each day. Entertainment and refreshments will be provided, and guests will be able to take tours of the area’s newest senior living community. Both events are open to the public but RSVPs are requested at 949-643-1050. Complimentary valet parking will be available.
The site, with breathtaking views of Saddleback Valley, was chosen not only for its views but its close proximity to Aliso Viejo Town Center and an array of other community facilities to make it easy for residents and their families to enjoy an active lifestyle. However, location is only one aspect of helping residents maintain their valuable connections with the surrounding community. Belmont Village staff members work to foster a “community-within-a-community” environment through a robust schedule of programs, activities and service projects of interest to residents. Belmont communities often act as neighborhood hubs, hosting meetings for local organizations and educational and social events for the community.
“When we choose our Belmont Village sites, we give a lot of thought to our future residents and the neighborhood,” said Patricia Will, Belmont Village Founder and CEO. “Many of the people who will make their home with us chose this community and Orange County as their preferred place to live decades ago. We want to create a place that allows residents to maintain the local connections they’ve built over the years, keep daily contact with family members and lead purposeful lives. Our community and team provide added support and security, which gives peace of mind and a measure of independence.”
Belmont Village Aliso Viejo, a Mediterranean-style three-story building, will be licensed as a Residential Care Facility that houses 149 private residences for Assisted Living and Memory Care. A leader in developing university-led, research-based programs, Belmont Village Aliso Viejo will offer residents a range of programs to support a Whole Brain Fitness lifestyle.According to Will, “We can build a wonderful building with warm ambience and innovative programs, provide well-trained staff who are both supportive and encouraging, but ultimately, it’s our residents who shape our buildings and turn them into the communities they become.”
For residents who are experiencing some cognitive decline, Belmont Village has pioneered a comprehensive therapeutic program to specifically address the needs and abilities of residents with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and early stage memory loss. Circle of Friends® provides 7-day-a-week, evidence-based group activities led by a dedicated, specially trained staff. The Circle of Friends® program was honored with the 2016 Best of the Best Memory Care Award at the 2016 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference and a George Mason University Healthcare Quality Improvement Award in 2011.
Belmont Village communities are renowned for their distinctive design, innovative programs, high standards for life safety, and reputation for quality. The design is by Van Tilburg, Banvard & Soderbergh Architects. The contractor is W.E. O’Neil who has completed several building projects for Belmont Village Senior Living.
Residents of Belmont Village Aliso Viejo will enjoy beautiful views, expansive common spaces indoors and out, including a heated salt-water pool. Services include chef-prepared meals, housekeeping and transportation services, a professionally managed fitness center for wellness programs and therapy services, enrichment and social activities, and support from a well-trained staff, including a licensed nurse on-site 24/7. Apartment selections include studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom plans with a monthly fee structure – no large buy-in or long-term commitment required for move-in.
