“What do most people think of when they see gray hair? They see frailty and disability with low speeds and high needs,” says Les Strech, Thrive Senior Living president. “What does Tribute at Black Hill see? We see wisdom. We see laughter. We see ability. We see growth. We see potential. We see opportunity.”

At Tribute at Black Hill, a Thrive Senior Living community, residents don’t just live there – they thrive. This is not your typical assisted living and memory care community. The moment you walk through the front door, you can see the difference. It’s four floors of modern and luxurious design with sunlight streaming through every window. The community offers beautifully appointed studios and one-bedroom suites as well as a dedicated memory care floor. This community is located within the Black Hill master-planned community with restaurants, retail, residences and more.

What sets Tribute at Black Hill apart are the dedicated and caring people who work there. “We have the most amazing team who believes in building meaningful relationships with our residents and families,” says community President Jodie Taylor. “For us, we want to know every little detail about our residents. We call this ‘deep-knowing.’ This is what makes our community a home.”

There is plenty to keep all older adults enjoying life to the fullest. Residents can spend time reading in the Butler Library overlooking the lush preserves just outside, listen to music in the courtyard or on one of two terraces, pump up their muscles in the Athlete’s Center, create Van Gogh masterpieces in the Blackrock Creative Studio, and even put their green thumbs to use in the botanical garden. The food is Wolfgang Puck worthy with a chef who has prepared meals for several U.S. presidents.
