They’ve been moving in residents since June, but the newest senior living community in Oakland County is celebrating its ribbon cutting on Thursday, Aug. 9. There will be drinks, dining, dancing, and more. And not to mention tours of the facilities, too.
The 97-bed facility at Stonecrest of Rochester Hills is roughly 50 percent full since opening a little over a month ago. It’s a remarkably good rate, says Lara Anderson, Director of Marketing at Stonecrest Senior Living. It usually takes 14 to 18 months to reach that mark, she says.
"We do a lot of research before securing land and start building. Detroit market data showed us that a need was there and Rochester Hills leased up some of the quickest," Anderson says.
"We’re right there on Rochester Road and close to downtown."
Stonecrest not only focuses on the physical health of its residents but also on their mind and spirit. A life enrichment program focuses on seven metrics, with programming that encourages residents to be friendly, active, aware, imaginative, spiritual, together, and gracious.
A special memory care staff is on hand to care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Stonecrest provides memory care staff with continuing education classes to provide up-to-date care.
There is also a special staff to help patients navigate their VA benefits.
The Rochester Hills location is the second of three Stonecrest facilities planned for metro Detroit. A Troy location opened in July 2017. A third location, in Northville, is scheduled open by the end of the year and is currently in the pre-leasing stage.
"We offer the same product at each location, but take a unique approach to the different interiors," Anderson says.
"Rochester Hills is especially calm and comforting."
Stonecrest of Rochester Hills is located at 1775 S. Rochester Rd. in Rochester Hills.
