October 2015 – Prince William, Va: Atlanta-based Thrive Senior Living has announced this week that it will hold a traditional “Topping Off” ceremony for its second senior living community in Prince William County, Virginia, just outside of Washington DC.
The Tribute at the Glen in Woodbridge, VA is joining its sister community, The Tribute at Heritage Village in Gainesville VA, with a focus on resident engagement and connectivity in a very unique, resort-like environment. Using a blend of technology and an innovative approach to providing care when it’s needed, The Tribute at the Glen will offer a distinctive experience for a new generation of seniors.
While The Tribute at the Glen will feature all of the amenities expected of senior living communities, it also features a very unexpected twist as well as some one-of-a-kind offerings. The Wellness Center, for example, will feature advanced pneumatic fitness equipment designed specifically for seniors, which have large touch-screen controls and easy access for those with limited mobility.
The 140-unit community will feature a spa, salon, movie theater, and outdoor rooftop terraces with fireplaces for year-round enjoyment. Dining venues include a casual bistro, a full- service restaurant, and multiple cozy bars for mid-morning coffee or a relaxing pre-dinner beverage. Licensed as an assisted living community, The Tribute at the Glen will provide great lifestyle options for seniors, ranging from those who are completely independent to those who need more care. Additionally, The Tribute will feature two separate and distinct ‘neighborhoods’ within the community, one of which is dedicated to serving seniors with varying levels of dementia. With specialized technology and a focus on engaging each resident at their level of cognitive ability, highly trained Care Teams aim to give meaning and a high quality of life to residents and to their families.
Residents will access their apartments using an advanced RFID system, eliminating the hassle and difficulty associated with traditional keys. Thrive’s proprietary wellness program allows residents, their families, and their physicians to have a holistic picture of their well-being through the use of tools such as activity trackers and innovative in-room monitoring systems which learn each resident’s routines and patterns and can report anomalies and trends.
Thrive Senior Living’s unique approach includes using technology to improve residents’ quality of life, and delivering care more efficiently and with more accountability. While the majority of the senior living industry relies on paper records, Thrive communities utilize the Smart Senior Living platform from LG, which creates an entirely digital environment and integrates communication, medication management, electronic health records, and resident care plans all on a single device in the hands of each Care Team member. Physicians and pharmacists will have instant access to ‘real time’ analysis of a resident’s complete health picture, allowing a more holistic approach to care.
The Tribute at the Glen is located at the intersection of Old Bridge Road and Prince William County Parkway, adjacent to the new Chick-Fil-A and Apple Credit Union. ”Southern Prince William County has not seen a new senior living offering in over 10 years, and has certainly never seen anything quite as unique as this” says Jeramy Ragsdale, CEO of Thrive Senior Living. “One of my favorite things is seeing families’ reactions when they see how unique the experience is.”
A Welcome Center will open near the site in the spring of 2016; the community is expected to be fully operational in October 2016.
