The idea of a senior/assisted living development with intergenerational learning ties to campus has been discussed for 15 years.
PURCHASE, NY — Broadview – Senior Living at Purchase College, an intergenerational senior learning community under development on the Purchase College campus, has appointed three members to its marketing team: Ashley Wade, Amy Post and Raina Maasik Woo.
The intergenerational senior learning community will offer residents an array of amenities including multiple and varied dining venues, a movie theatre, pool, fitness center, spa and salon. Its one-of-a-kind Learning Commons designed for intergenerational learning will have multimedia seminar rooms, performance and exhibition areas, a computer lab, studios for art and movement and a café – where residents, students and faculty can interact and learn from each other, both formally and informally.
The 220 independent living homes at Broadview will be comprised of 174 one- and two-bedroom apartments with underground reserved parking, and 46 two-bedroom villas with attached two-car garages. Forty-four apartments have been designated for affordable living. Westchester County residents will have priority over 50 percent of the affordable residences, provided they meet income requirements.
A well-designed on-site health center will offer a refreshing approach to assisted living and memory care to Broadview residents who eventually may need these services.
Ashley Wade joins Broadview as director of marketing, where she will oversee all day-to-day marketing, public relations and sales programming for the community.
