Q: Why choose The Seneca for Assisted Living?

A: Our community is rooted in hospitality and wellness and offers boutique-style living. Staff is highly trained to serve from their heart and to care for the whole person, ensuring residents’ needs are met with patience, understanding and love. The Seneca boasts a wide variety of amenities that rival world-class resorts, such as concierge services, chef-driven restaurants, a lounge with a full bar, a salon and day spa and an expansive courtyard and serenity garden with a labyrinth. Each floor is adorned with a gallery of unique wall art and sculpture that piques curiosity and encourages exploration.

Q: How does living at The Seneca impact residents’ overall health and wellness?

A: We create a strong sense of community through innovative programming that encourages socialization and connectivity, both of which are vital to long-term mental and physical health. Residents have access to a creative art studio, game rooms, a library, gardens and a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center.

Additionally, our community is focused on renewal rather than retirement. Therefore, programming is not what you would expect from an assisted living community. Our Watermark University offers customizable courses, allowing residents, associates and family members to teach and take classes on specific subjects they’re passionate about. Other unique programming includes EngageVR, an exercise that keeps the brain active while providing uplifting and educational experiences. Virtual reality allows residents to tour world-famous museums and cities, or even visit their childhood homes.

Q: What is one thing prospective residents should know?

A: Residents’ health and safety are our top priority. Our community features innovations — including an enhanced filtration and HVAC system, cold plasma bi-polar ionization, relative humid levels of 40-60 percent and touchless technology in common areas, among other measures — that reduce or prevent transmission of viruses.

Conveniently located in the heart of Montgomery County, The Seneca, slated to open this summer, is a hospitality-focused, high-luxury senior living community that offers assisted living, memory care and The Bridge — a neighborhood for residents with mild cognitive impairment. One- and two-bedroom residents are offered on a monthly rental basis with no long-term commitment.
