CHA Partners, a health care-focused, full-service real estate development firm, on Sept. 8 announced the unveiling of LIVIA—a senior living brand with a new facility in East Hanover, and an additional facility under construction in Totowa.
LIVIA will offer upscale wellness-focused assisted living, memory care, long-term care and rehabilitation services.
Transformed from the original Sycamore Living location in East Hanover, the first installment of the LIVIA senior living community will be operational this September, offering elevated services in a vibrant setting. The 100,000-square-foot facility houses 86 skilled nursing beds and 37 beds for assisted living residences.
LIVIA’s second facility, located in Totowa, is presently under construction and is projected to open in early 2022. The 310,000-square-foot campus – located near mass transit options and only a 23-minute drive from Manhattan – will also feature assisted living, memory care, long term care and short term rehabilitation services. LIVIA’s Totowa senior care community will also provide residents with unrivaled access to state-of-the-art amenities, weekly entertainment, daily activities and advanced health care services.
“LIVIA marks a major step forward in creating innovative, state-of-the-art senior living communities that cater to individual needs and lifestyle preferences,” said Bill Colgan, managing principal at LIVIA and managing partner at CHA Partners. “In developing LIVIA’s mission, we look forward to welcoming a new generation of senior care that prioritizes wellbeing with a focus on a concierge level of service.”
Each community at LIVIA is staffed with personal care partners that work as a team to ensure residents are attended to timely, receive high-quality care, and are engaged throughout their day. Community amenities include neighborhoods integrated with smart technology, restaurant-style dining, outdoor courtyards, and a “Main Street” showcasing a theater, gaming room, full-service bar/lounge, beauty salon and café.
Providing an exceptional concierge approach to customer service ensures that LIVIA places hospitality at the heart of everything it does. “Hospitality is the core of the brand’s mission, and our keen attention to detail coupled with our focus on providing unparalleled service and care truly makes LIVIA the premier senior living community in the state,” continued Colgan.
