Top 11 Things That Define Luxury Senior Living

If you are considering luxury senior living, you’ve probably noticed there are a wide range of choices that call themselves luxury. At Coterie, we take luxury senior living to a new level. Whether you are looking for independent living, retirement communities, senior living, or memory care, these are the most important things to consider when you are exploring your luxury choices.   

1. Reputation of the Provider

 

It is important for any senior living company to have a stellar reputation in providing quality care, as well as high-end amenities and services. Coterie is a joint undertaking by Atria Senior Living and Related Companies to develop best-in-class communities offering a range of living options to older people in urban markets. As one of the largest senior housing operators in North America, Atria extends its high-quality services to more than 45,000 residents in more than 400 communities in 45 states and seven Canadian provinces. Related Companies is a leading developer in urban multi-family housing, with more than $60 billion of real estate and more than 78,000 residential units. Their portfolio includes more than 30 million square feet of commercial retail, office, and luxury hotel properties. And both Atria and Related are reputed as market leaders in their fields. 

2. Location 

 

Do you want to live the life you are accustomed to in the city you love? Coterie locations are in the heart of always-on cities like New York and San Francisco, so you can live in luxury without leaving for a suburban or rural area. Coterie delivers a lifestyle – in vibrant locations – that caters to your refined sensibilities, keeping you at the center of it all.  

3. Technology 

 

You’ve been using technology to make life easier for years. Coterie has been designed with technology thoughtfully integrated throughout the buildings and residences. The Coterie Smart Home System combines innovation with comfort, putting you in command of connected features like ordering room service to lowering your shades and adjusting the lighting. A CarePredict® wearable fitness monitor allows you keyless entry to your residence and enables you to communicate with the care staff as needed. At Coterie, you’ll find technology seamlessly makes your life effortless, from the smart toilets in your bathrooms to the speed ovens in your full kitchen. 

4. Concierge Services 

 

Concierge services can truly set a senior living community apart. Look for hospitality services that include support for everything you need to get the most out of life – and do it in style. Coterie offers an anticipatory approach to service, delivering convenience from the moment you wake up to the time you put your head on your pillow. Every detail has been considered, from the 24/7-attended lobby with concierge and doorperson to pet-care services and pantry stocking. Coterie’s housekeeping, technology support, and maintenance will be at your fingertips. And the Coterie chauffeured car service is available to take you wherever you desire. 

5. Health Services 

 

If you are looking for assisted living or memory care services, you want to make sure there are plans tailored to your specific needs, whether you plan to live fully independently or require high-level care. Coterie leverages the internationally recognized expertise of the Mayo Clinic and provides fully customized care to your needs. 

Families facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other cognitive impairments will find confidence and comfort in specialized care and innovative, engaging programs. Even the dining experience for Coterie Memory Care is specialized and individualized for each resident.  

6. Wellness Services and Amenities 

 

Keeping your wellness top of mind is a critical decision-making factor in your pursuit of luxury senior living. You want to find a place to live that integrates fitness, nutrition, and overall well-being to nourish your mind, body, and spirit. At Coterie, you can pursue goals in the state-of-the-art fitness center staffed by members of a professional wellness team. Work with an expert on an individualized wellness plan or take part in group classes like dance and Pilates, led by the area’s most qualified instructors. Find your zen in the yoga studio or get into the flow with a morning aqua therapy class in the rooftop pool. 

7. Culinary Experiences 

 

Any luxury senior living community should offer elevated dining experiences. Traditional senior living typically offers a cafeteria style approach to dining. You want dining options in environments that fit the lifestyle to which you are accustomed. Coterie offers multiple dining venues, chef-crafted menus – including signature dishes created in collaboration with top local restaurants – using balanced, locally sourced ingredients, and a classical approach to culinary service. Our culinary services are led by renowned local, award-winning chefs who have trained at top-tier restaurants. Whether you are ordering room service or dining at the formal restaurant with friends, you’ll enjoy delicious, restaurant quality meals.  

8. Building and Apartment Amenities 

 

Another key factor to consider when choosing a luxury senior living community is the amenities. Libraries, pools, rooftop gardens, salons, and cinemas – look for a wide variety of options that suit you so you can do what you love without leaving your luxury community. At Coterie, everything from a rooftop oasis with gardening plots, a bocce court, and outdoor dining, to the custom wood-paneled library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves is intentionally designed for community and comfort. 

9. Programs 

 

A luxury community should provide you with a large selection of culturally rich and rewarding events that are of interest to you. From the moment you move in to Coterie, our Mayo-certified wellness coaches help you design a lifestyle package tailored to your interests and needs. Program curation at Coterie focuses on physical activity, mental acuity, personal development, and creativity through arts and cultural events. At Coterie, programs are designed to enable you to live life to its fullest.  

10. Interior Design 

 

A big point of distinction between most senior living communities and those that embody true luxury is the design of the space. Luxury senior living shouldn’t look like senior living at all, while still offering features that make it a safe and enriching place to live as an older adult. Coterie interior was designed by renowned global interior design firm MAWD. Warm color palettes and modern décor blend together to create spaces that foster interaction, learning, leisure, and relaxation.  

11. Private Residences  

 

From the moment you enter your luxury senior living residence, you want to feel ensconced in comfort and luxury. Every finish, fixture, and fine detail should be designed to make a statement. A luxury senior living community should offer all the comforts of home, with added details that make it an ideal place to age gracefully. Coterie’s private residences range from studio apartments with full kitchens to two-bedroom, two-bathroom suites with private terraces. Each apartment includes high-end Miele® appliances and kitchens with custom cabinetry. Nine-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, herringbone hardwood floors, custom inset carpets and handcrafted, built-in millwork set each apartment at the luxury level.
