ACTS Retirement-Life Communities, the parent company of Indian River Estates has had us photograph all 23 of their Retirement Communities in 8 states. This was a return engagement to document the grand opening of the continuing care facility on the campus of Indian River West. Refined Florida retirement lifestyle on a large 100-acre site, expertly landscaped campus, shared with sister community Indian River Estates East. Located just 10 miles from the beach, and with all of Vero Beach’s cultural and entertainment attractions nearby. The WillowBrooke Court addition follows a nationwide movement to make senior care more homelike, where residents live in “households” and share a kitchen, dining room and living room. Other features include flexible schedules and activities, enhanced dining options, as well as larger living spaces and activity areas that promote socialization.
Residents at Indian River Estates donated more than $3 million toward the expansion at the continuing care retirement community that features a new model of senior care widely lauded within the healthcare industry for its person-centered service delivery and architectural design. A very cool design that feels more like a 5 star hotel than a retirement community.
