The best retirement communities, we think most would agree, are about more than simply caring for the basic needs. Isn’t that just the minimum, really? That’s certainly the thinking behind our Leisure Care group of communities. We go beyond the ideas of Independent and Assisted Living. Way beyond, in fact.
We provide the basic needs and we do it exceedingly well. Then we take it up a notch. We add services like you’d find in a fine hotel. Guest services, healthy and delicious dining choices, and housekeeping. But we don’t stop there. We add things that add to the fun factor. Social and recreational activities, fitness and travel programs, brain workouts and art classes. All at an affordable price.
Even our assisted living services are far from ordinary. We offer several levels of care customizable to your particular needs, and services delivered with professionalism and finesse. All to have you living better than you ever thought possible.
No one ever aspires to live in a retirement community, right? Well, sort of. If the community is average and run-of-the-mill, that statement would be correct. But, if the community is like a resort? Elegant and fun? Then you would be talking about a Leisure Care Premier community. These communities cater to active, independent folks. And they offer lots of choices. Oh boy, do they. They have all of the services and amenities of the Leisure Care group of communities, and more. With enhanced PrimeFit fitness programs, whole person health and wellness options, and more dining options than you can shake a menu at, you may just aspire to live at one yourself.
And almost all of our Premier communities offer assisted living services that can be added at any time. How’s that grab you? A resort with assisted living? You better believe it.
Some communities are so unique, they defy definition. That’s Signature 180. These communities are as unique as you can imagine. A community in a converted brewery? How about living a football’s throw of a Pac-12 university campus? Or a place that takes service to another dimension? All of our Signature 180 communities have the enhanced services and amenities of our Premier group, along with their own individual touches. A decked-out movie theater, a high-end spa and salon, and a rooftop putting green are just some of the things you’ll find. What you won’t find is anything remotely boring. Curious? Well then, we’ll just let these communities speak for themselves.
You’ve probably already discovered if you’ve read this far that there are over 35 Leisure Care Retirement Communities in the Western US and Canada. That, most would say, is quite a lot to choose from. But, we don’t stop there. You’ll find choices in Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care, too. So no matter what lifestyle you seek, you’re very likely to find it here.
Choose a community offering Independent Living if you are active and don’t require any assistance. All Leisure Care communities offer Independent Living apartments.
Assisted Living is available at most all of our communities and services can be added at any time. This type of care is for folks that need help with daily living, ranging from “just a little bit here and there” to quite a lot.
Our Memory Care apartments are for those seeking care for loved ones with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This specialized care is available at three Leisure Care communities, two in Colorado, and one in Oregon.
Needless to say, we understand that you are not the least bit interested in sitting around and feeling “old.” Otherwise, why would you still be reading our website? Well, we can guess. You’re active, healthy, and hey, let’s admit it, probably quite spunky, too. You appreciate the finer things in life. Good food, good company, comfort and choice. That last one is a doozie, too. Because with more choice, you can do what you want, whenever you want to. Isn’t that what you’ve always thought retirement should be about? You bet it should. You’ve certainly earned it.
Choice in dining, exercise, travel, education, relaxation, social opportunities, and more. You name it. We’ve got tons of it. So go ahead, create a lifestyle that is just like you — active and independent. We’ll help you make it all possible. We’ll even rid you of those tedious chores like housework and yard work, so you have more time to live it up. There really is no telling just how much fun you can have at a Leisure Care community. But, then, wouldn’t you like to try and find out?
All Leisure Care communities offer a variety of Independent Living apartments. Browse our Locations page or use our fast and easy 3-step “Build Your Own Retirement” tool to find the best match for you.
So, maybe you need a little help sometimes. No problem. Like a trusted friend, we’ll be right there when you need us. And, just like that friend, we’ll also make sure you have fun, too!
Our Assisted Living services are very, very flexible. Probably as flexible as your yoga instructor, that’s how much. So you will get precisely the help you want, just when you need it—services can be added at any time. Whether it’s medication management, helping with mobility, coordinating care with your physicians, or making sure you look your best at Happy Hour on Friday, we are there to help. Most of our communities also offer temporary stay support and temporary illness services.
But the best part? We take our Assisted Living services to another level. We can’t help it that we’ve set our standards so high. Maybe it comes from being one of the first in the industry to offer Assisted Living services, more than 35 years ago. You can say we like to stay ahead of the curve. Our professional staff is trained to provide the best service available, and all with a healthy dose of patience, finesse and humor. So once you move in, you can bet that life will get easier, more fun, and more relaxing. We’ve worked very hard to make sure that happens. But don’t take our word for it. Visit one of our communities today and see for yourself.
There is no cookie-cutter treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. We understand your loved one requires a personal approach. We practice what is called the Best Friends Approach,™ developed by Virginia Bell and David Troxel. Simply put, we believe what a person needs most is a “Best Friend” – caregivers who empathize with the individual’s situation, remain loving and positive and dedicated to helping the person feel safe, secure and valued. Our programs fit the person, not the other way around.
To us, successful therapeutic care for Alzheimer’s and dementia combines care for all of life’s wants—physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cultural. We encourage family members and friends to be as actively involved in their loved one’s care as they want to be.
There is no question, caring for a loved one is stressful for everyone involved. It’s incredibly sad to watch someone you know so well lose their memory, and seemingly, themselves. But we can help relieve some of that anxiety and stress. Your loved one can still find meaning and contentment in each new day, and you can still enjoy every moment you have with them. Please contact us for more information.
There comes a time when mom or dad (or grandma or grandpa) needs a little help or they would simply rather do more interesting things than housework. And it can be emotional talking about getting older, moving out of a cherished home, needing help when they’ve been so capable throughout life, and seemingly giving up so much freedom. We understand, and if you come to Leisure Care with this circumstance at hand, we would first like to put your mind at ease. Seeking a community that can help your family with the transition shows your commitment and is an act of love. Secondly, once you get to know us, our communities, and our philosophy you will, we believe, relax even more. Why? Because you’ll feel good talking to your mom or dad about us. You’ll feel good taking them to see one of our communities. And, ultimately, you’ll see that caring for needs and offering help is just the minimum with us – we promise to not only provide a place to live, but the power to live. So, whether you’re looking for an Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care community, we, more than likely, have something that more than just “fits the bill.”

(POMPANO BEACH) May 17, 2013 – Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group announced today that it has acquired The Preserve at Palm-Aire Retirement Community, a four-story, 298-unit independent and assisted living community in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Seattle-based Leisure Care, a One Eighty company, was hired by The Carlyle Group to manage the property. The Preserve at Palm-Aire is Leisure Care’s second community in Florida and fourth management contract with The Carlyle Group, coming on the heels of the acquisition of The Camellia at Deerwood in Jacksonville in August 2012.
“We’re excited to continue to grow in the Florida marketplace and introduce our culture of Five-Star Fun to the residents and staff of The Preserve,” says Leisure Chairman & CEO Dan Madsen. “This is our fourth management contract with The Carlyle Group. We value that partnership, and look forward to creating a legacy of quality and service in Pompano Beach and beyond.”
The Preserve at Palm-Aire features four floors of studio, one, and two bedroom suites as well as eleven free-standing villas. Leisure Care will continue to offer the community’s full range of services, which include restaurant-style dining, a fitness center and assisted living services. Leisure Care will bring its lifestyle enhancing signature programs, including PrimeFit total fitness and full-service in-house travel agency, Travel by Leisure Care. There are also plans to add a memory care unit.
The Preserve at Palm-Aire is located at 3701 W. McNab Road in Pompano Beach along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean just north of Fort Lauderdale. Set amidst 13 acres of lush grounds near five golf courses, The Preserve is conveniently located between I-95 and the Florida Turnpike.
The phrase “senior living dining” usually conjures visions of an institutional buffet line of colorless vegetables and mystery meat under orange heat lamps. Leisure Care is on a mission to prove this stereotype wrong by creating a dining experience for their residents that rivals meals at some of the world’s finest restaurants.
For the third consecutive year Broadway Proper and Old Pueblo Traders teamed up to put on a fashion show benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters. Eight women modeled for the benefit on April 13. With the exception of the program supervisor at Broadway Proper, the models were all in their 60s and older. The event offered opportunities to volunteer or donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
