The Towers Celebrates Return to New Normal


With 93% vaccination rate among residents, staff and caregivers, The Towers at Tower Lane is pleased to share that we are returning to life as normal. Programming will resume to a full, in-person schedule. We will re-open our café slowly in May. Current residents and those new to our community will also benefit from the new Proactive Partner Model through which services are wrapped around each resident in a customized way to address their goals and needs. 


We very quickly implemented critical safety measures to keep our community healthy. The delivery of delicious, nutritious meals from our in-house kitchen to residents’ doors enabled our community to distance healthfully. We kept our staff and caregivers safe by providing the necessary PPE and supplies to perform their work safely. We are proud that we’ve had no resident-to-resident transmission of COVID-19 in our community. 


There has never been a better time to move to The Towers as we welcome new residents. Our strength comes from our communal setting. Our residents were able to remain connected and enjoyed services throughout the pandemic. We are concerned for those who have remained in their individual houses. They have likely experienced more isolation and disconnection. They may now be facing greater decline. The Towers, which typically has a waiting list, has openings for the first time in many years. For those considering a move, there has never been a better time to join our safe, vibrant community. New residents will be welcomed into our vaccinated community, where they can enjoy friends, neighbors, programming and person-centered services in a safe, carefully delivered way. 


We are a wonderful option for those seeking a warm, down-to-earth, vibrant community. With no buy-in or upfront fees, we are an excellent option for those who want financial flexibility and the freedom to focus on what matters to them: family, friends and new experiences. Residents in our community enjoy high-quality services, a dining plan, and save an average of $2,000 per month compared other local senior communities.

“The past year has been particularly challenging for the elderly. With two family members at The Towers, we have had numerous concerns for our loved ones,” said Ellen Iead, a family member of two residents. “The Towers community has been extraordinary. The early implementation of comprehensive testing for residents and the inclusion of family caregivers has made a huge difference. Residents have three meals a day delivered to their doors. The staff has been instrumental in providing services and maintaining COVID safety protocols. Masking and distancing during programs kept everyone safe. Towers TV has broadcast exercise classes and other programs to residents who subscribe. Activities and treat bags were delivered to doors, volunteers called residents daily to check in, and other group activities have been held on Zoom and via telephone. With on-site vaccinations concluded and most residents and caregivers inoculated, in-person activities have carefully begun again. With spring here, there can be more time outside. Gus has been a compassionate, effective leader guiding The Towers through this trying time all while still looking forward to the future.”
