Q: What is important to you when hiring staff?

A: We are dedicated to providing first class, five-star hospitality service. We all know what that feels like. Our staff members, many of whom have worked in healthcare and hospitality, have excellent skills, capability and competence. Through the interview process they must also demonstrate an inherent kindness and a special spirit for their work so that their joy is evident, every day.  

Q: What is special about your dining program?

A: Our chef, Kevin Cecilio, has a remarkable resume. He has trained and worked with renowned chefs such as Eric Ripert, Aaron Silverman, Brian Voltaggio and Eric Ziebold; in luxury fine dining with The Ritz-Carlton, Mandarin Oriental, Range and Rose’s Luxury. Our residents are thrilled by his seasonal creative and delicious food. Yes, he has a lofty background, but he is also a father who knows how to make a great classic burger and Neapolitan style pizza.

Q: How would you describe the energy of your new senior living community?

A: We have all the advantages of being a new building with a leadership team who comes with years of experience. From our Executive Director to our Director of Wellness and Assisted Living Manager, many of us were hired away from the competition to launch this exciting new type of senior living. Solera’s owner, Adam Kaplan, envisioned building a place where he would be happy to live, and he did just that. 

Style and elegance have touched every aspect of Modena Reserve at Kensington, where we offer extraordinary independent living, assisted living and memory care. Set free from day-to-day concerns, residents are enjoying engaging programming, best-in-class amenities, five-star service, innovative technology and the highest standards of safety and care
