LCB Senior Living, LLC Celebrates the Groundbreaking
for The Residence at Brookside
74-Apartment Independent, Assisted and Memory Care Living
Community for Seniors to Open in Winter of 2015
JANUARY 21, 2014—AVON, CONNECTICUT. LCB Senior Living, LLC (www.lcbseniorliving.com) broke ground today on The Residence at Brookside (www.residencebrookside.com), a 74-apartment Independent, Assisted and Memory Care residence for seniors at 117 Simsbury Road in Avon, CT. The ceremony featured several speakers, including Town Manager Brandon Robertson, Chamber of Commerce President James Gordon, and Avon Historical Society Director Nora Howard.
“Avon is an ideal location for this community, and we’re very fortunate to have found a site that is so well-situated to the many amenities,” said LCB Chief Executive Officer Michael A. Stoller. ”We’re very much looking forward to becoming a vibrant asset to the Town and its local seniors.”
The groundbreaking team launched a project that will spur more than 70 jobs in Avon, while creating much-needed housing for seniors with needs ranging from full-independence to early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and memory impairment. The project is currently in lease-up phase, and is scheduled to open in early 2015.
The Residence at Brookdside was funded in part by Prudential in Atlanta, GA (www.prudential.com). M&T Bank (www.mtb.com) was the lender.
Independent Living residents at the community will have their own apartment with kitchenette and bath, along with the peace of mind of 24-hour security, three gourmet meals prepared and served restaurant style on-site, available laundry and cleaning services, a full activities program, building and grounds maintenance, and a host of optional services. Assisted Living residents will have all of the above, along with assistance with the activities of daily living, including dressing, bathing medication reminders, and other services.
The Residence at Brookside will also include LCB’s Reflections Memory Care services for residents with early stage Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments. In addition to offering sophisticated cognitive programming and a range of daily services, Reflections is a secure, safe environment with its own common areas, walking courtyard, and other amenities.
LCB Senior Living was founded in 2010 by the management team of the former Newton Senior Living, LLC (NSL). NSL was one of the first assisted living developers and operators in Massachusetts, and was the 16th-largest assisted living company in the United States when it was sold to a division of Lazard Freres in 2005. Headquartered in Norwood, MA, LCB currently manages two assisted living facilities: Traditions of Wayland and Traditions of Dedham, and owns and operates The Arbors of Bedford in Bedford, New Hampshire and The Lighthouse at Lincoln in Lincoln, RI. In addition, LCB recently broke ground on The Residence at Watertown Square in Watertown, MA, and The Residence at Riverbend in Ipswich, MA, and The Residence at South Windsor Farms in South Windsor, CT.
