The Dangers of Seniors Living Alone

By News, Uncategorized

Independence, freedom and self-reliance are woven into the fabric of American culture. There are scores of movies, books and songs about the loner who relies on their wits and skills. As teenagers, most of us couldn’t wait to be out of the house, making our own decisions. But as we grow older, what was thrilling in our teens and adulthood can start to become dangerous and risky.

The truth is, as much as we value our freedom, humans are highly social, and even the most introverted of us need some form of human interaction. And while we might like to think of ourselves as self-reliant, we need others for our physical, emotional and psychological well-being. As we age, our circle of friends can start to dwindle, and it can become difficult to make new ones.

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

By 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.
