State of the art independent living and assisted living community located in the upscale Cinco Ranch neighborhood of Katy draws much attention and interest.
With the Solana at Cinco Ranch opening its doors in October of 2009, the Katy and surrounding areas got a taste of senior living at its best.Â â€œNow we have extended our senior living services with the opening of The Solana Terrace, the Solanaâ€™s state-of-the-art assisted living neighborhood,â€ says Nick Roccaforte, Executive Director for The Solana at Cinco Ranch.Â
â€œWe are committed to a holistic caring process for the seniors we serve and are delighted with the welcoming reception we have already received from the Katy and surrounding communities,â€ Roccaforte said.Â The Solana at Cinco Ranch, designed for gracious senior living and compassionate care, added 32 assisted living apartments to the 158 apartment senior living community named The Solana Terrace.Â
The Solana Terrace opened its doors on Mar. 12, moving its first residents into the luxury accommodations which consist of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments all equipped with kitchenettes and wireless emergency call systems.Â Residents of the assisted living neighborhood receive the same great amenities offered by The Solana including chef-prepared meals overseen by Director of Dining and Culinary Arts Chef Bradley Montgomery served three times a day in the beautiful Lantana Dining Room.Â The community also features an innovative CyberSenior program where residents can communicate with loved ones via webcam and e-mail as well as surf the internet.Â
In addition to gracious living, the Solana Terrace is overseen by Director of Wellness, Sandee Sterling a registered nurse.Â Sterling, who brings 16 years of experience in nursing and says, â€œâ€¦ residents can choose as much or as little care as they desire with four levels of care.â€ Â Participation in wellness and fitness programs are encouraged with exercise classes offered daily as well as access to onsite physical, occupational, and speech therapy through RehabCare.
Â â€œA focus on balance, fall prevention, and strengthening programs fosters mobility and improved quality of life among seniors and thatâ€™s important to us,â€ said Sterling.Â
Â Special features at the Solana Terrace include programs such as Wii and brain games which improve residentsâ€™ cognitive and physical fitness, a Wellness center and home health and hospice care, both of which are under the direction of local community partners.Â
The Solana is a joint venture whose principals include two Atlanta-based companies, Formation Development Group and The Arbor Company. Â The Arbor Company has more than 20 years experience in the senior living arena with 13 senior living communities in the southeast.Â Arbor principal M.E. Costello said: â€œOur platform has always been to take great care of our residents and employees. Â From that, good things happen.Â We are proud to be bringing that philosophy to Cinco Ranch through the Solana and the Solana Terrace.â€
The Arbor Company is currently transitioning its communities to a â€˜greenâ€™ culture over the next year and The Solana at Cinco Ranch is proud to be leading that charge, added Costello.
