Courtyard Gardens Senior Living
Our name is Courtyard Gardens Senior Living, a boutique, five star resort senior living community. Who are we? Well, we would like to start with the why. WHY do we do what we do? We believe in creating a vibrant community that challenges the status quo relating to both perfecting and inspiring the next chapter of all of our Members’ lives within the senior living community by creating something special: a five star resort senior living community that specializes in independent living which also includes supportive services and memory care.
How we get there includes the implementation of over five generations of successful methodologies and combining them to create maximum efficiency, leadership, service, and care within the structure of a defined setting and experience. So instead of asking WHAT we do to make our Members lives better, we would like to discuss WHY instead—because we believe that it is important for those around us to understand WHY we started doing WHAT we are doing and finally WHAT we are doing to bring our cause to life.
We (the Gozzo family) had an aging mother in her 90’s who lived alone in Palm Beach County. As she aged in place and never wanted to give up her independence, we became curious about the options available for her. So we began our tours of assisted living communities throughout Martin and Palm Beach Counties. We saw facilities that were taking advantage of their residents by providing minimal care, in subpar buildings, at drastically unaffordable prices. On one of our tours we encountered a concerned family member who told us, “there are just no other options.” Simply put, the high demand in this marketplace for those needing these types of services leaves family Members and residents with limited options available to them. That is, many of the buildings we toured were old, run down with musty odors, and the residents were disheveled and unkempt with minimal staff attending to their needs. They had little, if any, options.
After visiting over 75 facilities, we decided to talk with a friend, noted surgeon Dr. George Peck Sr., who owns and operates Courtyard Gardens Assisted Living in Jupiter. This is a 130-bed community which has been operating for the last 20 years and is always filled to capacity—this because of the compassion and attentiveness given to its Members. We teamed with Dr. Peck Sr. to create the most ideal and most efficient floor plan possible within a five-star, ultra high-end, Country Club atmosphere as well as a resort community for like-minded people.
Our building layout is the backbone of the culture we cherish, which promotes socialization, not isolation. The single story building, friendship suites, centralized amenities and common areas within an open environment all contribute to the feeling of socialization which is so very important to the Members. The courtyard design is integral in creating that centralization and socialization as all rooms have a point of beginning and wrap easily into a central gathering place—where Members can mix, mingle, dine and enjoy other activities. We created friendship suites so that every Member can maintain the independence of their daily lives, have socialization with one another, all while still living in a Country Club atmosphere with the finest of amenities, including 5-star dining, a wide array of activities, continuing education, and organized tours throughout Palm Beach County—all with the finest level of care and attention to each Member’s mental and physical needs.
We had a vision to revolutionize this industry by offering what would be the FIRST affordable, five-star senior living community with a Country Club atmosphere. Designed with a British West Indies influence, the building is finished with multi-million-dollar detailed finishes. Members are welcomed into a main gathering area with soaring 14-foot boxed-beam ceilings with extensive crown moldings creating a welcoming feeling and a light and bright environment. The finishes also include custom chandeliers in not just the main gathering areas but throughout the entire building.
Careful attention was paid to each detail including all of the guest suites which include 10 feet ceiling heights. The custom suites are finished with hand-selected tile reaching to the ceiling, including 4-foot wainscoting going around the entire perimeter of the bathrooms. All hallways are 8 feet wide and accented with beautiful recessed ceilings and picture frame moldings along with 8 foot high doors and windows throughout the entire building.
Our need to re-shape this industry by offering better lifestyle communities across the state of Florida, both in quality of housing, and an exceptional level of care will help our senior loved ones feel more comfortable and safe in an unrivaled atmosphere with simply the best care for the best people in their lives. This is our WHY.
