At Someren Glen, residents embrace the community’s motto of pursuing “The Fine Art of Living,” in whichever form that may take for each individual. For some, that may mean tending to the community herb and vegetable gardens, for others, meeting regularly to talk over tea and knitting needles or turning a handmade bowl or vase in the wood shop.
While our tight-knit Independent and Assisted Living community flourishes with rich friendships, active lifestyles, and residents who are pursuing their passions, it is time for our shared spaces and apartments to be updated so they are as refined as those who live here.
Planning for the Renaissance refresh began in 2021 following the renovations of our independent living apartments. We are pleased to be consulting with Senior Housing Partners and working with Frontline Construction and Aneka Interiors to modernize our beautiful community.
Aneka Interiors designed calming and inviting spaces with natural color palettes and accents. Each step of the way, the teams at Aneka Interiors, Someren Glen, and Christian Living Communities have consulted with residents on finishes and designs, the comfort and functionality of seating and furniture options, and how they wish to use shared community spaces.
“The Aneka team facilitated a discussion with a group of residents to gather feedback,” shared Keli Swales, Executive Director at Someren Glen. “The group reviewed and decided on color palettes, and shared the aspects of the community that are most important to them and the features they would like to see incorporated into this renovation.”
The renovations of our assisted living apartments are already underway. Three apartments at a time will undergo a complete refresh that will include contemporary yet classic finishes throughout. Residents will enjoy new cabinetry, countertops, flooring, carpet, and lighting, backsplashes in the kitchen and bath, and fresh paint on the walls, doors, and trim. The neutral color palette will create a clean canvas for residents to personalize with their own unique and meaningful décor and treasures.
We expect that all assisted living apartments will be completed by the Spring of 2024.
Beginning in 2023, nearly every inch of Someren Glen’s Independent and Assisted Living building will be updated with fresh finishes, layouts, and features to enhance and simplify community life. From hallways and restrooms to the fitness room and library, no detail has been overlooked. However, among the renovations that residents are most looking forward to are the living, dining room, and an updated community room.
We can hardly wait to experience the transformation of our living room and gathering areas. The heart of our community, these spaces will be renovated to incorporate warm, natural details with rich textures, ambient lighting, and artwork that has heartfelt meaning to Someren Glen residents.
Above the two-story, double-sided fireplace will be a stunning, large-scale woven tapestry that honors Someren Glen’s long-standing resident knitting group.
Additionally, the welcoming sitting areas will offer ample space for residents, families, team members, and visitors to enjoy great conversation and lively events.
The dining room will be modernized with a striking room divider that will help create smaller, more intimate dining spaces.
Our new Grab ‘n’ Go dining area and lounge will offer residents and visitors a convenient, healthy dining option and casual seating when they don’t have time for a sit-down meal in the dining room.
Someren Glen’s Independent and Assisted Living building will soon enjoy a refreshed multi-purpose community room that will better accommodate residents and team members! We are looking forward to gathering together in community to socialize, celebrate, and discuss topics of importance with those who live and work here.
We are thrilled to embark on this period of renaissance at Someren Glen. With both aesthetic and functional updates, residents will be able to fully embrace the fine art of living in a beautiful environment that fosters connection and community.
