Brightview Senior Living Shelton, CT Welcomes Residents to their New Home
August 7, 2019
Shelton, CT - In summer 2019, scenic Shelton welcomed the Brightview Senior Living community to their neighborhood. At 168,000 SF, the 4-story building is located at 30 Beard Sawmill Road just off Route 8 between New Haven and Bridgeport, CT. Brightview based in Baltimore, MD collaborated with longtime partner, PROCON of Manchester, NH as the Architect and Construction Manager of their newest community.
The community offers 161 luxury apartments in a variety of styles and care options. Housing options include 87 Independent Living, 48 Assisted Living, and 26 Wellspring Village® Apartment Homes. Wellspring Village® is a specialized Brightview neighborhood designed to enhance the lives of those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
The design features a farmhouse style vernacular with bays, a gabled roof, balconies, porches, and an attractive porte-cochere entrance which all complement its countryside surroundings. The design was intended to encourage residents to connect with the outdoors by importing plenty of natural light with cathedral ceilings and oversized windows.
Residents from all over the region have made their home in the attractive building, and it wasn’t long before some of them posted online reviews about their experience. Among the residents was Linda Delaurno, who said, “I’ve been here for almost a month and still feel like I’m on vacation. I have met some wonderful people who are as happy as I am. Happy Hour and dinner conversations are always interesting as we learn more about each other. Everyone has a positive attitude. The staff is outstanding and does their best for us.”
Linda is just one of the charter residents that can make the most of each day through numerous community amenities such as a fitness center, a pub, theater, beauty/barber shop, café, library/media room, and elegant dining rooms. Residents will also be able to enjoy the outdoor fire pit, walking trails and scattered exterior seating. The community’s thoughtful curriculum also includes group activities, clubs, games, and hobbies as part of a lifestyle package that encourages socializing. Finally, every need is attended to by a carefully-selected, and trained staff and enhanced by chef-prepared meals, housekeeping, dining, and transportation.
Brightview Senior Living has discovered the secret to vibrant post-retirement life by providing older adults with a premier environment and numerous options for remaining active and connected. Shelton is their ninth collaboration with PROCON, and the second in Connecticut, following the completion of Brightview New Canaan in Norwalk two years ago.
