Clarendale at Bellevue Place Hires Leslie Brown, Director of Sales and Marketing, and Claudia Buchanan, Director of Memory Care

By Community News

Nashville, Tennessee (January 7, 2020) – As building construction nears completion on Nashville’s all-new senior living community, Clarendale at Bellevue Place has hired two leaders to help residents transition to their new home. Leslie Brown will serve as Director of Sales and Marketing, and Claudia Buchanan will serve as Director of Memory Care.

Located within the development of One Bellevue Place, Clarendale at Bellevue Place will provide independent living, assisted living and memory care all under one roof. The staffing additions help round out a team that will be welcoming the senior living community’s first residents in the coming weeks of 2020.

“We are delighted to have Leslie and Claudia join the Clarendale at Bellevue Place team—especially now,” says Brandon Bornstein, executive director. “Leslie has the experience, passion and dedication it takes to help Nashville-area families find the right senior living solutions. While Claudia has the credentials, expertise and background to prove she’s the right person to lead our two highly specialized memory care neighborhoods.”

Brown brings more than 20 years of experience in sales and marketing to her Clarendale role, with the last decade primarily focused on health care. A native Nashvillian, she is a graduate of Auburn University.

“I consider myself lucky to have found a position at Clarendale that taps into my desire to help families,” says Brown. “Through much of my career, I’ve been an advocate for seniors and those who love and support them. And in my personal life, I’m passionate about fundraising for charities benefitting the disabled. So, I guess you could say I have a heart for making myself useful to help others. Clarendale senior living solutions will allow me to do just that.”

Buchanan is an experienced Chaplain and also a Certified Dementia Practitioner, specializing in bereavement care, so she brings unique qualifications to her position as Clarendale’s Director of Memory Care. Also, her loving commitment to dementia leadership is personal: Buchanan cared for her own parents in their final years.

“I have experience with our Clarendale at Bellevue Place sister community in Hendersonville, so I’m confident residents and their families will find this community just as attractive in Nashville,” says Buchanan. “The residential setting is designed to make those who live here feel at home, but perhaps more important, our heartfelt approach to care, known as Heartfelt CONNECTIONS – A Memory Care Program®, truly offers individuals with memory loss a sense of safety, security and quality of life seldom found at other communities.”

According to the newest staff members, Brown and Buchanan, the emphasis on quality of life and total wellness is true of all neighborhoods at Clarendale at Bellevue Place.

Bornstein explains, “The focus—whether in our independent living and assisted living neighborhoods or in memory care—is on total health and wellness. In fact, our Health & Wellness Navigation™ program helps ensure that residents can navigate any medical challenges that may lie ahead. It’s a comfort to both residents and their families.”

Seniors and families interested in Clarendale of Bellevue Place may call 615-271-5511 to schedule a visit. The community is located in the One Bellevue Place development at 7632 Highway 70 South in Nashville. More information also may be found online at ClarendaleAtBellevuePlace.com.

Clarendale at Bellevue Place Opens Information Center and Names Executive Director for Their All-New Senior Living Community

By Community News

Nashville, Tennessee (April 30, 2019) – Clarendale at Bellevue Place, the senior living community currently under construction within the development of One Bellevue Place, has hired Brandon Bornstein to serve as executive director of this community, which will provide independent living, assisted living and memory care. With the community scheduled to open late 2019, a new information center is now open at 7618 Highway 70 South, Suite 106, in Nashville. The information center is next door to The Well Coffee House.

“I’m delighted to be joining Clarendale at Bellevue Place—especially now,” says Bornstein.
“It will be a pleasure greeting Nashville-area seniors and their families at our information center and introducing them to Clarendale, which will offer a unique combination of residential amenities, exceptional hospitality services and social opportunities seldom found in other senior living communities.”

With more than 7 years of experience in senior living, Bornstein developed his passion for serving seniors through his experience at Gentiva Hospice, Life Care Centers of America and Brookdale Senior Living. He is well-positioned to serve as the executive director of Clarendale at Bellevue Place thanks to a combination of strong credentials and solid commitment to helping seniors and their families find the right lifestyle solutions. He holds a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Tennessee Tech, where he played on the Golden Eagles baseball team.

“I know Nashville seniors and their families will appreciate the unique benefits of village-style living. Clarendale at Bellevue Place will offer a gracious, comfortable residential setting that helps residents live life to the fullest, staying connected to the people, places and things they most enjoy,” Bornstein says.

Located 13 miles southwest of downtown Nashville at the intersection of I-40 and US 70 South in the development of Bellevue Place, Clarendale at Bellevue Place will offer independent living, assisted living and memory care under one roof with a focus on connected living.

Bornstein explains: “At Clarendale at Bellevue Place, the emphasis is on services and programs that provide the opportunity to stay a part of, and involved in, mainstream living, as well as fostering relationships with family and others outside the community.”

The senior living community will offer a variety of floor plan options. Residents may choose from private one- and two-bedroom apartments in both independent living and assisted living. Studio suites will be available in memory care. Residents will also enjoy access to community spaces for socializing and entertaining, including a restaurant-style dining room and casual bistro, a pub, club room, library, salon and fitness center.

The new executive director also suggests that the location will be particularly attractive. “The development of Bellevue Place puts so many shopping, dining and entertainment options practically at the doorstep of the community. Residents and families will enjoy strolling shops ranging from PetSmart and HomeGoods to ULTA and Sprouts Farmers Market. There are two hotels for visiting family, an AMC Theaters location with rocking seats and luxury recliners, plus the Nashville Predators Sports Center with two ice rinks.”

For more information about the community, Bornstein may be reached at the information center located at 7618 Highway 70 South, Suite 106, in Nashville, or by phone at 615-271-5511. Details are also available on the community’s website at ClarendaleAtBellevuePlace.com.
