Avanti Senior Living is proud to present a sneak peek at its newest assisted living and memory care community, Avanti at Towne Lake. Seniors, their families and friends are invited to visit to see and feel the Avanti experience. The welcome center will feature textures, furniture and design that are all unique to Avanti. From the friendly team to the unique ambiance, visitors will learn what differentiates Avanti at Towne Lake and sets it apart from traditional senior living communities. Creating a progressive design that will accommodate seniors and their guests, Avanti presents a lavish, yet relaxed, environment for everyone. Three-dimensional renderings and pictures will help showcase the community's layout and provide visitors with a distinct impression of the community's overall feel and design. The welcome center will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on opening day. The address is 17808 Lakecrest View Drive in Cypress.


"Sometimes, the best way to convey a new idea or concept is to create an opportunity for an experience that embodies the very feeling you desire to evoke, which we hope to do in our new welcome center," said Lori Alford, COO for Avanti Senior Living. "Visitors will be able to learn about how we are revolutionizing care for seniors in need of assisted living and memory care services. We plan to redefine the customer service experience for our future residents by combining unrivaled care with sophisticated living, cutting-edge design and technology that will surpass the highest benchmarks currently in the senior living industry."


The welcome center will be open from 9:00 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment on Saturday. In the welcome center, seniors and their loved ones can learn about the variety of destinations that will be available to them, including a state-of-the-art wellness center with ballet bar and fitness equipment, a theater, a full-service salon and spa offering relaxation therapy, aromatherapy, therapeutic massages, hair styling and manicures/pedicures, and a fully functional art studio with an abundance of natural light and a stone wall for the residents to display artwork. Visitors will also be able to try fresh, organic yogurt from a Green Kitchens yogurt dispenser. This yogurt will be one of the many healthy and delicious food options available to residents at Avanti at Towne Lake.


"Avanti at Towne Lake will be truly unique as it will establish a lifestyle where the residents have a multitude of choices," said Tim Hekker, CEO of Avanti Senior Living. "An 'experience coordinator' will be available to customize personal preferences in regard to meals, activities, wellness, entertainment and more. Residents can pick and choose when they want to participate in activities, when and where they prefer to dine and how they wish to plan their day. We plan to give seniors and their families a sense of our philosophy and unique culture when they visit the welcome center."


Avanti at Towne Lake will be evocative of a resort-style hotel encompassing timeless hospitality and signature amenities. Each resident will have a generous oversized suite designed for style, sophistication and comfort. Avanti at Towne Lake will provide 90 one- and two-bedroom spacious suites that maximize living space. The suites will boast plush carpets, wood flooring, expansive windows, walk-in closets, oversized showers, stone countertops, upgraded finishing on plumbing, appliances, and other household features, extensive counter space and storage space, and other signature features. Avanti's goal is to combine luxurious finishes with high functionality and safety.  


Hekker and Alford founded Avanti Senior Living, leveraging their combined 50-plus years of senior living and healthcare experience. They created the company with a vision of fundamentally redefining the customer service experience for assisted living and memory care by providing a quality of life that fosters independence. Avanti senior living communities will initially be built in Texas, Florida and Louisiana; then the company will move into other markets nationwide.
