After breaking ground in July 2016, Stonecrest of Town & Country is open for business. The community officially welcomed its first residents at the end of April, and the community’s staff and owners are working hard to provide a warm and unique experience for all who enter the doors.

The community is composed of 60 private apartments in assisted living, including studio suites, one-bedroom suites and two-bedroom suites. In addition, the memory care neighborhood contains 26 more suites with a secured courtyard.

Linda Iken-Robertson, Stonecrest of Town & Country’s executive director, says she and her staff have been waiting to get the doors open since before they broke ground last year, and she’s excited to show the St. Louis community what Stonecrest of Town & Country has to offer.

“Over the past year, we’ve been able to paint this picture of what [Stonecrest] would look like, and I think that’s what’s made it so successful already,” Iken-Robertson says. So far, she adds, the residents have been “loving it.”

The smooth opening is thanks to many, including Stonecrest of Town & Country’s move-in coordinator, who helps new residents coordinate and execute their move-in. The move-in coordinator takes “so much stress” out of the moving process, Iken-Robertson says.

Once residents move in, their Stonecrest of Town & Country experience is completely tailored to them.

“We are completely resident-centered,” Iken-Robertson says. “It’s one of our top priorities. If a resident wants to go zip lining, we can make it happen.”

One of the key highlights of Stonecrest of Town & Country is its award-winning Dining by Design program. The program offers restaurant-style ordering and service, so residents aren’t limited to certain foods or dining times.

“The food is made to order, and the restaurant-style service gives residents the opportunity to enjoy the atmosphere and the company around them,” Iken-Robertson says.

The community also offers a program called Vibrant Life, which includes seven components for a more balanced life. Stonecrest of Town & Country is able to provide a full calendar of activities and outings, and residents can also enjoy a library, game room, movie theater and fitness center.

Residents at Stonecrest of Town & Country don’t have to worry about utilities or housekeeping, since the services are included. Staff members are also available 24 hours a day, should a resident need any assistance.

Stonecrest of Town & Country is managed by Integral Senior Living.

“We’re open and can’t wait to show everyone what we have to offer,” Iken-Robertson says.
