Q: What is the defining concept of your new senior living community?

A: Style and elegance have touched every aspect of Modena Reserve at Kensington. Scheduled to open fall 2021, Modena will offer extraordinary independent living, assisted living and memory care. Residents will enjoy engaging programming, best-in-class amenities, exemplary service, innovative technology and the highest standards in safety and care.

One example of how we will stand out in the market is our plan to hire a seasoned executive chef from the hospitality world. We are featuring an indoor/outdoor wine bar overlooking a lushly landscaped courtyard with fire pits and a water feature. Lastly, we are restoring a historic building into a neighborhood coffee shop that will showcase the best local coffee and pastries.

Q: When is the right time to move to a senior living community?

A: Anecdotally, most residents of a senior living community wish they had made the move sooner. Why? They enjoy all the amenities, services and friends they make. With little to no daily cooking or cleaning, there’s plenty of time for fulfilling hobbies, socializing with friends, volunteering and participating in continuing education classes.

Q: Will technology play a major role at Modena Reserve?

A: Certainly! We will have a three-foot robot who will travel around the building interacting with residents. We love virtual reality. With a headset on, you can travel to Rome, sky dive or take a roller coaster ride. An in-house channel will make it easy to FaceTime or participate in a Telemedicine appointment. Residents can enjoy underground parking for their own cars and ride in style in our Tesla SUV. Modena Reserve at Kensington will set a new standard for senior living in Montgomery County.
