Fountaingate Gardens, the proposed active independent senior living community in Commack, Long Island, recently celebrated its 150th deposit, and is adding more every day! These are people who have declared that they’re ready to take the next step to learn how they can embrace a worry-free, amenity-rich and active lifestyle by joining the Charter Club, an exclusive group of Fountaingate Gardens depositors. Members join the Charter Club through a fully refundable deposit that gives them priority previews and residence selection choices before the general public.
Gurwin is the community sponsor, a local leader for almost 30 years in serving the senior population. Since proposing plans to create a Life Plan Community (also known as a Continuing Care Retirement Community, or CCRC), Gurwin continues to see more and more seniors select Fountaingate Gardens as their retirement choice.
“The concept of a Life Plan Community makes a lot of sense, and Gurwin has an excellent reputation,” says Charter Club member Paula Blum. “The plans look promising, not institutional.”
Paula is referring to Fountaingate Gardens’ expansive clubhouse featuring a restaurant, bistro, theater, indoor heated saltwater pool, classrooms and visual arts studio, as well as customized residences in a village-like community.
First in line
Already, nearly 160 seniors have joined the Charter Club by making priority deposits, ensuring they have the chance to make the first selections of Fountaingate Gardens’ one and two-bedroom residences. The deposit, which is fully refundable, is applied to the entrance deposit once a residence is reserved at Fountaingate Gardens.
As a Charter Club member, Rosemary Oetiker likes the idea of being in on the ground floor of an inspiring property. “I hope to have input in the planning of the community and I want to meet potential members,” says Rosemary.
Charter Club members like Rosemary have an opportunity to meet future Fountaingate Gardens residents at social events and be the first in line to select a customized residence once the development breaks ground. They’ll also get to choose the finishes in their brand-new homes and have first dibs on choice locations.
Reputation and location
Gurwin has a reputation for providing quality assisted living, skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation care on their Commack campus, as well as home care programs, an adult day health program, and on-site dialysis. As an independent senior living community, Fountaingate Gardens will round out the continuum of care.
Jay Broad, an early Charter Club member, feels comfortable with his choice of Fountaingate Gardens as his future home. “I like the familiarity with Gurwin and the completeness of care,” he said. For depositor Lee Jacknow, living at the community will provide a peace of mind for his son. “It seems to make sense at this time for long-range planning.”
With nearby access to cultural events, beaches, mass transportation and New York City, it’s little wonder priority depositors see Fountaingate Gardens as a destination senior living community. Many priority depositors like the idea of remaining close to family and the familiarity of Long Island.
Depositor Ina Rubin says she tells her friends about the community. “I like the concept, the social activities and not having to cook.” When asked what she would say to people who think it’s a place for old, boring people, she laughs. “I guess they’ll just have to come see it!”
Living at Fountaingate Gardens defines what it means to be an active senior. If you’re a senior who wants a vibrant lifestyle and the convenience of a prime location, Fountaingate Gardens could be your next home. Join our priority depositors and see what the future holds for you!
