Grand Living At Riverstone

By Melissa Gautier

Life brings so many uncertainties, but one thing is for sure — aging is inevitable. Many of us are at that point where we begin the arduous task of evaluating living options for our parents, loved ones, or ourselves. Until now, searching for a deluxe community with a compassionate team that puts their residents’ needs and comfort at the top of their list was a challenge. Grand Living at Riverstone makes the choice easy, successfully blending comfort, compassion, life-enriching activities, and luxe accommodations resulting in a first-class living environment for seniors ages 55+. 

Grand Living’s long-awaited debut in Sugar Land offers independent living, assisted living, and memory care services for ages 55 and above, offered as a month-to-month rental without the large buy-in fee. Gracious appointments and stunning décor greet guests at every turn. The upscale and lavish environment features an exciting array of amenities and activities, feeling more like a resort than senior living accommodations. 

“We proudly offer a remarkable hospitality experience for residents to enjoy the best years of their lives,” explains Gina Koons, executive director at Grand Living at Riverstone. The professional hospitality staff of chauffeurs, chefs, care partners, and housekeepers take care of everything so residents and their guests can enjoy events and activities at their leisure. Grand Living’s impeccable service, spacious apartments, multiple dining venues, exclusive amenities, and impressive array of stimulating programs, excursions, entertainment, and fitness classes personalized to residents’ lifestyles are offered within this all-inclusive environment at a remarkable value.

Sterling Touch Signature Service

From the moment they are greeted, residents and guests begin to experience something far more luxurious than the surroundings — the unparalleled commitment to personal service that has become a Grand Living hallmark. “The Sterling Touch signature service is the epitome of high-end hospitality, created in concert with luxury resort and esteemed hotel brands,” Gina explains. This service-oriented approach defines how each team member conducts themselves, and how they will provide a multitude of services to their residents. Dedication and commitment to delivering outstanding service is evident by the tender care and concern they have for residents and their families. 

Collaborating With Families

“We invite the family of each of our residents to join us as a care partner in their loved one’s journey.” Grand Living at Riverstone works with each resident’s family to personalize their care needs and celebrate their unique qualities. “The family is a huge component in developing personalized care. We collaborate before, during, and after a resident’s move-in to create an extensive picture of their life and build a plan to meet their continuing needs.

“By providing routine family-care meetings, the team adapts to any changes in residents’ ongoing care.” Education, assistance, and support for families is provided through these care meetings, creating opportunities to participate in your loved one’s daily living without shouldering their daily care.

Enrichment and Engagement

Grand Living is designed with residents’ comfort and pleasure in mind. Amenities and opportunities that facilitate social interactions are key to providing a rich experience for each resident. “The resort-like atmosphere is like a cruise ship on land,” Gina says. The community offers formal and casual dining venues, private dining, dining al fresco, and a bistro. Award-winning chefs prepare delicious, scratch-made meals residents rave about. The Forum Theatre, art and game studios, putting green, and sparkling swimming pool delight residents and encourage friendships, while the Grand Spa and Fitness Center features a full-service salon and full-time director of fitness. 

Residents are pleased to discover the beautifully appointed Grand Library and Grand Lounge and Club room, as well as a chapel and meditation center, fountains and courtyards, community fire pit, and pet walking areas for those bringing an animal companion.

Grand Living values all aspects of fine arts. In addition to local entertainment scheduled on the monthly calendar, the BRAVO program features professional opera singers, international musicians, and artists from around the globe to perform for everyone’s enjoyment and appreciation.

Independent and Assisted Living  

When settling in, the well-appointed residences lend a sense of comfort and security that feels like home. Multiple floor plans are available to suit each resident’s needs. Independent living offers residents the opportunity to set their own schedule, choosing to engage in activities they enjoy at a time that is convenient for them. 

The innovative ‘Age-in-Community’ design allows residents to remain in their independent living residence with the opportunity to obtain assisted living services such as aide with personal hygiene, dressing, and grooming, should those needs arise. 

Luminations Memory Care Program

This specialized program supports individuals with memory loss due to Alzheimer’s and related dementias. The relationship Grand Living’s team builds with residents and their families assists in understanding their personal needs for navigating their day while maintaining a sense of self, dignity, and individuality. Each resident’s unique life story is developed throughout their journey. Families can choose between two distinct neighborhoods for their loved one – Monarch Lane (co-ed) or Lavender Lane (exclusively for women).

Life does not stop when you or your loved one becomes a resident at Grand Living. The upscale, energetic, and encouraging atmosphere allows residents to explore and enjoy their golden years and start an exciting new chapter in their lives.
