High-quality senior living communities offer the latest amenities, privacy, comfort, and beautifully
decorated home-inspired environments for seniors. The variety of settings, care offerings, and
residences can range from convenient high-rise apartments near metropolitan centers to converted
Victorian homes, to campus communities with all the charms of a small town. There is no single
blueprint for assisted living because consumers' preferences and needs vary widely. Most
residences have between 25 and 120 living units, varying in size from a single room to a full
Assisted living residences provide more services than independent living communities. They offer a
less-expensive, residential approach to delivering many of the same services available in skilled
nursing homes, either by employing health-care staff or contracting with home health agencies and
other outside professionals.
Typical Assisted Living Services:
Access to health care and medical services customized to specific needs.
24-hour emergency call systems for each resident.
Three meals a day served in dining area, housekeeping, and laundry services.
Assistance with eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, and walking as needed.
Shuttle buses, exercise and wellness programs.

Living with Assistance in Mind.

guests and residents

options for the resident to make his/her house his/her home. Each home has a full kitchen and a
second suite for a companion of for visiting families. Bathrooms are designed to accommodate
wheelchairs and walkers, whether the resident needs such assistance now or may in the future.
Assistance with Daily Activities
Whether you or your loved one needs no assistance or a great deal of
assistance, we are “the” perfect community available to meet your
needs. Those needing no assistance with daily activities such as
dressing, eating, and bathing might consider an independent living
community, while those needing some assistance, including
cognitive, would be best served in assisted living.

- from book groups to planned activities to gardening clubs. Residents typically participate in activities outside
the residence as well. Certainly, quality of life has different meanings for different people, so our community
offers a variety of social programs to meet residents' interests. Activities staff will often assess each resident's
activity and leisure needs and interests to help them identify programs of interest. You can expect a balanced
calendar of activities for everyone from the active senior to the memory-care resident. Wellness and physical
fitness also are part of a well-planned activities program. We have fitness rooms and staff on hand to help
residents develop fitness plans that suit their needs. Special classes are typically offered as well, such as yoga,
chair exercises, and walking.

Promotions and Bulk Sales

Our Fly and Buy Program encourages potential buyers and their agents
to visit our site.
We offer the most exciting Development Participation Program in the
industry, where Realtors and investors actually share the profits of the
development for their involvement in the sales of Ailanto Condos and
Villas. Given its fantastic response we are studying expanding this
concept to the sales of the homes.
We have a Charitable Donation Program, where Charities are given
lots for them to auction to their Donors. All proceeds are donated to the
charity and we even match the bid price as an additional donation for
the charity. The high bidder must then build a home on this land within
two years of the purchase.
The front wall has been completed, the gates and guardhouse are being built now, and the roads are
being expanded. We have received full permits and approval of Setena, the environmental agency.
