Scottsdale, Ariz. (October 27 2020) — One of the leading continuing care retirement communities in Scottsdale, Vi at Silverstone, is celebrating its 10th anniversary of welcoming seniors with an inspired lifestyle centered on wellness and social connectedness. Over the past decade, Vi at Silverstone has served more than 570 seniors and has continued to evolve as demand for the Vi lifestyle has grown. The community’s focus on promoting the health, wellness and longevity of its residents and offering a complete on-site continuum of care has made Vi at Silverstone one of the premier senior living destinations in Arizona, as residents enjoy their community of elegant homes, engaging activities and exceptional care.
“Since opening our doors in 2010, we have been deeply blessed to serve an amazing community of seniors alongside a truly exceptional staff,” said Jill Wolverton, Executive Director of Vi at Silverstone. “As we celebrate this special milestone in the midst of unprecedented times, our residents inspire us with their resilient spirits and positive attitudes and our team remains committed to providing the highest quality care.”
Nestled in resort-like North Scottsdale, Vi at Silverstone’s design and amenities resemble those of a five-star resort. With impeccable attention to detail, Silverstone offers a variety of floorplans, including one- and two-bedroom condominiums and freestanding villas. Dedicated to delivering an enriched lifestyle for residents, Vi at Silverstone encourages discovery through various activities, social connectedness and stimulating outings. The community is complemented by a bespoke amenity suite including an indoor and outdoor pool, cinema-quality movie theater, an 18-hole putting course and manicured gardens. With the onset of the pandemic and the shelter in place mandates, Vi at Silverstone quickly pivoted to offer virtual opportunities for community, physical fitness and spiritual and emotional wellness, such as happy hours, cooking classes, fitness classes and more. Vi at Silverstone’s beloved resident choir, The Vi Tones, was even able to continue rehearsing through Zoom. Wellness is a focus for Vi at Silverstone as they promote the “living well” philosophy, and the community has been able to fulfill that promise while helping residents stay safe and physically apart.
To safely commemorate the 10th anniversary while abiding by CDC health and safety guidelines, the Vi at Silverstone team delivered gift bags to each residence on celebration day, containing champagne, a Vi at Silverstone commemorative calendar and a Vi at Silverstone signature mask. A five-course celebration dinner delivered to each door featured beef Wellington and crab-stuffed lobster tail. In lieu of the community’s tradition of a celebratory group receiving line at dinner for special occasions, this year’s virtual celebration featured videos of staff sending anniversary wishes to residents, and a concert by the group “We 3” aired on the community’s cable channel. Executive Director Jill Wolverton recorded a toast for residents, allowing them to raise their glass to Vi at Silverstone safely from the comfort of their homes.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, Vi operates 10 continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) across the United States. With more than 30 years of experience as the owner and operator of residential communities for older adults, Vi continues to work toward providing quality environments, services and programs to enrich the lives of those they serve.
