RittenhouseTucked behind Lowes, off of Highway 6 and Willowcreek Road, in Sterling Creek Village is a new community for seniors being developed by Rittenhouse Senior Living. The community will offer assisted living, a special care unit for people with Alzheimer’s disease and 2-bedroom villas for seniors who are able to live independently but don’t want the hassles of home ownership any longer. The people of Rittenhouse Senior Living believe that residents come first in everything they do.

This is Rittenhouse Senior Living’s third community in the area as part of its three-community partnership with Developer Steve Garatoni.  Last fall, they opened communities in Michigan City and Valparaiso and also have an existing community in Indianapolis.  Rittenhouse is a privately held, national senior living company currently operating in 4 states. “Our growth plan includes both acquisition and development,” Ed Yarish, CEO for Rittenhouse stated. “This partnership with Steve Garatoni was a unique opportunity to enhance our portfolio and to expand our Operations further into the Midwest.”

“We are excited about planning the Fall 2010 opening of our Portage community and about becoming part of this neighborhood,” Frank Wehr, Chief Operating Officer at Rittenhouse said.  “We will have 120 units in this location comprised of 90 assisted living and 30 independent living villas and most importantly will bring approximately 60 new jobs to the area,” Wehr added. 
The two story building is approximately 68,500 square feet and includes a secured memory care unit, beautiful grounds, modern amenities and a state of the art monitoring system.  Amenities within the community will include a café, flat screen televisions, large activity areas and spacious apartments. Estimated construction costs are $11 million.

The company has a temporary Sales and Information Center located in the Menard’s shopping center across Highway 6. Rittenhouse Senior Living of Portage’s Director of Sales and Marketing Betsy Cuellar joined the company as its first employee. Cuellar brings years of compassion for seniors and their family members to the job and looks forward to introducing this new community to the Portage market. “There are many options for seniors to choose from in the area and we look forward to partnering with them and other local health care providers to bring the best services possible at this new location,” Cuellar said. “Rittenhouse welcomes you to visit the sales and information center to learn more about the services they will be offering.”

Rittenhouse has many living options available for our residents. They offer studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments in its assisted living building. Each of these apartments is equipped with a kitchenette including a refrigerator and microwave oven, personally controlled heating and air-conditioning units, walk- in showers, cable television and plenty of closet space. The main building has beautifully landscaped grounds and courtyards, comfortable community and activity rooms, a fireside lounge and corner café.

The independent living villas are completely maintenance free. They have two bedrooms and two full bathrooms a full kitchen and one car garage, and patios. Included with your villas is weekly housekeeping and one meal a day. This affords for a completely care-free lifestyle.

For residents who require more specialized care, professionally trained staff uses state-of-the-art techniques. The Memory Care programs offer a secure unit with individualized care for the memory impaired resident.

Rittenhouse offers personal care in companion or private living accommodations along with the comfort and security of knowing the community is staffed with licensed nurses around the clock.

Rittenhouse Senior living provides far more than a warm and secure place to live. Residents enjoy gracious friends and staff who really care about them. Rates include 24 hour nursing care and medication management. Three delicious meals a day plus snacks are provided by on-site executive chef. Other amenities include housekeeping and laundry services, cable television, utilities and a full calendar of activities including day trips, musical entertainment and social hours.
