The Kensington Off to a Fast Start
WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK (January 2012) – The Kensington, a new enhanced assisted living and memory care residence in downtown White Plains, NY has announced that it is more than 50 percent occupied after four months.
“We are thrilled with the success we’ve achieved since our grand opening in September. The response from residents and families in the area has been tremendous. Clearly, there is a strong need in this market for the kind of high quality and compassionate care that we are providing at The Kensington,”
Ms. Watson said one of the main reasons for The Kensington’s success is that as an enhanced assisted living residence it can offer licensed nursing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, plus a full spectrum of clinical support including skilled care. As a result, residents do not need to relocate to another facility if their assisted living care needs change. “At The Kensington, you can truly age in place. This is a very important benefit for many of our residents and their families,” she said.
Another important feature of The Kensington is its Memory Care program which provides care in two specially designed neighborhoods which are ideal for those with Alzheimer's or Dementia. The Connections Neighborhood is for those with early- to-mid-stage memory loss while the Haven Neighborhood is designed for those with mid-to late-stage loss and is secured to enhance safety. Care managers and other staff at The Kensington are specially trained in caring for those with memory loss. “The need for memory care services is growing as more and more of the senior population lives longer,” said Ms. Watson.
Located at 100 Maple Avenue and one block from White Plains Hospital, The Kensington features 87 attractively designed suites with a wealth of amenities and services in an elegant and comfortable setting. The Kensington is convenient to downtown White Plains including the nearby Westchester mall, Galleria and The Ritz-Carlton, Westchester Hotel. Personal transportation for residents is provided by a sedan and wheelchair accessible bus.
The exceptional health care services offered at The Kensington include primary care managers for personalized attention to daily needs, monthly health and wellness assessments, medication, diabetes and continence management programs and specialized diets. The Kensington also has on-site physician office and rehabilitation facilities; exercise and fitness programs and art classes.
Residents at The Kensington enjoy fine dining with meals attended by wait staff with open seating times, table linens, china and crystal. A café is stocked with snacks, fresh fruits and beverages at all times. Residents can also enjoy daily cocktail hour and afternoon tea. Other outstanding amenities include outdoor terraces and patios; Wi-Fi access; beauty salon, billiard room, library and art room. Residents receive weekly laundry, dry cleaning and linen services.
