The senior living industry has seen a veritable revolution in dining services over the last decade, and many of those trends started with restaurants and cafes across the country. It wasn’t long ago that convertible bistro/wine bars and fast-casual dining were relegated only to the world of consumer dining.
Fleet Landing, a 125-acre gated retirement community that opened in 1990 in Atlantic Beach near the entrance to the Mayport Naval Station, has had a waiting list of as many as 290 families hoping to move into one of its 354 residential units.
So the fact that Fleet Landing will soon announce an ambitious $105-million construction project that will begin later this year should be well received by those people. That project will include residences, 30 nursing-care beds and 38 assisted-living beds.
ORLANDO, Fla. – At the 54th Annual LeadingAge Florida Convention and Exposition, the association recognized outstanding members, employees, and residents in eight categories. The awards highlight the best in the aging services field and recognize outstanding members and communities that have gone far beyond to serve their communities, employers, and residents.
“The LeadingAge awards showcase the quality of LeadingAge Florida communities and the ways they are innovating to provide the best possible care for Florida seniors,” said LeadingAge Florida President & CEO Steve Bahmer. “Our award winners are the best in the field of aging and seniors services. They represent their communities and LeadingAge Florida at the local, state, and national levels. I appreciate their passion, dedication, and commitment.”
The Executive of the Year Award was presented to Elizabeth Sholar, Administrator/ Director of Health Care Services at Fleet Landing.
