You worked hard for many years. You raised a family, put children through school, paid off the mortgage on the big family house and retired after a successful and rewarding career.
Along the way, you somehow found time to appreciate the finer things in life. You and your spouse traveled the world, pursued hobbies and passions, visited the great museums and developed a love for five-star restaurants and wonderful food and wine.
Now you’ve downsized and, not one to call it a day, are seeking your next adventure. But you’re not likely to find it in a traditional retirement community. Luckily, there exists the perfect place for seniors seeking the finer things in life.
Welcome to Ovation Heartwood Preserve, the upscale luxury retirement community in Omaha on the site of the former Father Flanagan’s Boys Town. Opening this winter for those 55 and older, the 300-unit development is designed for singles and couples who are ready for the next adventure in life and want to pursue it in style.
Live life to the fullest with fine dining onsite and an active lifestyle
What distinguishes Ovation Heartwood Preserve from other retirement communities is the marriage of upscale amenities and a multitude of options for active lifestyles. “We’ve created an environment for people to live their lives on the same or even greater level than they're used to and want and deserve,” says Stephanie Grade, general manager at Ovation by Avamere.
Concierge services and fancy rides to the grocery store
In place of the standard dining hall concept, “We have four different restaurants on site,” Ms. Grade adds, “everything from Starbucks in the morning to fine dining at night.” And rather than having to take a community bus or rideshare to go grocery shopping, Ovation’s concierge valet service will arrange for a Mercedes S-Class limousine to transport residents to the supermarket.
Ovation Heartwood Preserve is part of the 500-acre Heartwood Preserve development that, when finished in mid-2030, will include corporate office space, retail stores, restaurants, parks and walking paths.
Units are smart, enabled with tech for added convenience and comfort
The 300 units at Ovation Heartwood Preserve include 150 independent, 90 assisted living and 60 memory care units. All are “smart apartments,” enabling residents to control the light, temperature and other functions in their units from the comfort of their armchairs.
What also distinguishes Ovation Heartwood Preserve is the astounding array of spaces dedicated to engaged lifestyles. These include a business center, fitness and yoga studios, swimming pool and hot tub, rooftop clubs for social gatherings, common rooms, tea rooms, and outdoor kitchens and bars.
Exceptional lineup of staff ready to serve residents
On hand to serve the desires and needs of residents is an equally impressive lineup of staff that includes a concierge, life enrichment director, executive chef, full-time IT person, on-site physical and occupational therapists, and 24-hour on-site nurses, among others.
To live at Ovation Heartwood Preserve requires no expensive upfront fee that many upscale retirement communities charge. Instead, the entry fee is one month’s rent, with monthly payments thereafter.
“We have to earn our clients’ business every month,” says Grade. “My team always has to be on its toes not only to meet their expectations but to exceed them.”
