Seabury is an Active Life Plan Community located on 66 acres of beautiful countryside in Bloomfield, Connecticut. For the past year, they have been preparing for the next generation with some exciting developments. They have teamed with the country’s top senior living firms on a major construction project — including 68 new independent living residences, an expansion of Seabury’s first-rate health care services and several new features and amenities.
Phase A of the project included a complete re-design of the main lobby and the addition of a new creative arts studio, a luxury salon/day spa and a beautiful new bistro. Phase B, now underway, will see the completion of four unique styles of one- and two-bedroom Independent Living residences in Seabury’s South Wing.
Each residence will offer scenic views and vistas in all directions and the flexibility to be customized to residents’ personal taste. The expected completion and move-in date for this project is in the fall of 2017.
“Besides state-of-the-art features and amenities, what really sets these properties apart is the ability for residents to truly create their own home environment,” says Renee Bernasconi, Chief Strategy Officer and Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “The goal is to create designs that are as unique as the individuals who live here.”
As part of their environmental sustainability efforts, Seabury recently became the first privately owned Life Plan community for adults 50 and over in the United States to receive a Green Globes designation. The designation is a result of their commitment to employing sustainable building practices with minimal ecological impact, including energy performance and reduction in water consumption. Phases B and C of the project include the implementation of a solar panel system over car parking areas as well as a geothermal energy system to assist with heating and cooling.
Other exciting developments include an expansive chapel/auditorium and open meeting spaces for college-level courses provided by the Adult Learning Program. Seabury residents will also be able to have the protection and security of full campus generation, in the event of a power or weather emergency.
They have also expanded their Seabury At Home services. In addition to Independent and Assisted Living and their full continuum of care, Seabury offers an innovative home-based life plan program. They have now opened a satellite office in New Haven County, allowing Seabury At Home to offer care to individuals in the southern part of the state.
Seabury’s age requirement is 50, one of the lowest in the country. They encourage prospects to consider the transition while they are still young and healthy enough to qualify for a Life Plan Contract and fully experience all that life at Seabury has to offer.
“A big part of what makes Seabury such a vital and thriving community is the fact that we’re always looking forward,” says CEO Richard Heath. “These exciting new projects will build on the strong foundation of what Seabury is today and make it even greater.”
