AUGUST 26, 2014

Moorings Park, Johns Hopkins University Create Geriatrician Fellowship Track

Moorings Park President and CEO Dan Lavender announced the award-winning Continuing Care Retirement Community in Naples has joined forces with Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore to create one of the most innovative fellowship tracks in the field of geriatric medicine. The newly designed track will train experts in the field who will be equipped to transition into leadership positions. The two-year fellowship will include one clinical year in geriatric medicine at Johns Hopkins, and one year of leadership training in senior practice management and medical direction at the Moorings Park campus located on Goodlette-Frank Road.

“We are very excited about partnering with Johns Hopkins University to increase the number of geriatricians and confident that the service to our residents will be enhanced with this program,” said Lavender. “An important objective of this fellowship program is to prepare leaders in geriatric medicine in Florida, so applicants who plan to have a career in Florida are strongly preferred. Johns Hopkins and Moorings Park are acknowledged leaders in their respective fields and fully appreciate the growing need for leaders in gerontology, particularly in Florida. We fully expect this fellowship program will ultimately have a positive impact on the quality of care retirees receive throughout the state.”

Moorings Park offers a continuum of care designed to provide experiences customized to each resident right on campus. That continuum of care includes medical care provided by fellowship-trained geriatricians overseen by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Michael Gloth who is a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society.

“As children, our medical needs were overseen by a Pediatrician,” said Dr. Gloth. “As we grew into adulthood, we relied on Family Practitioners or Internists. Retirees have medical needs that are different than they were not too long ago. Gerontology is a field of medicine that addresses issues associated with aging. There’s a difference between internal medicine or family medicine and what we’re doing with our knowledge about aging and geriatric medicine. Risk factors change as people age. Working with physicians who have the understanding of what those physiological changes mean is an advantage for individuals who are aging."

Dr. Gloth and his team play an essential role in providing Moorings Park’s continuum of care. Their individualized treatment plans take full advantage of the community's Center for Healthy Living and Extended Congregate Care licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center.

"The continuum of care offers security for our residents," said Dr. Gloth. "It allows us to treat people in the office and to interact with them in other settings. We have the ability to use our knowledge of geriatric medicine to coordinate exercise, out-patient rehabilitation, and nutrition with what is happening on the medical side. That allows us to provide a more holistic model for healthcare overall. When you hear expressions like ‘60 is the new 30,’ those expressions are about how much healthier and independent individuals are at later stages of their life today. The model we have emphasizes healthy living and overall health and well-being. Geriatric medicine has taught us there are the things we can do earlier that pay huge dividends in terms of optimizing functional survival, the ability to be active as you get older and retain that independence much longer in life.”

Dr. Gloth’s team and network of medical professionals includes geriatric-specialty nurses, an osteoporosis specialist, cancer specialists, ophthalmologists working in the Center for Healthy Living’s state-of-the-art eye laboratory, as well as onsite specialists in cardiology, podiatry, dermatology, neuropsychiatry, and other disciplines. While their professional expertise is exceptional, their level of caring and compassion is extraordinary.

“I have never been any place where I’ve been as impressed by how genuine the caring is at Moorings Park,” said Dr. Gloth. “Not just in terms of providing care, but in terms of taking a real interest in the residents. The medical team genuinely cares and you see it everywhere. You cannot provide the level of care we’re able to provide unless you have support from leadership and the leadership at Moorings Park is remarkable. They have a genuine interest in providing simply the best to the residents. We wouldn’t have the program we have if somebody years ago didn’t say "We are really going to be challenged by health care down the road and we want to be ready for whatever is coming." That vision and leadership has continued and the fellowship program participants will have an opportunity to experience that firsthand.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks Announces Entry Lobby Designs for Phase I Buildings

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks unveiled designs for the entry lobbies in each of the four Phase I residential buildings. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks is a Continuing Care Retirement Community being developed at the corner of Airport-Pulling Road and Golden Gate Parkway in Naples. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks presents an opportunity to enjoy a holistic approach to living well in an enclave of elegant residences that provides the high-quality continuum of care and lifestyle programs of a renowned retirement community along with the amenities and activities of Grey Oaks Country Club. A Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club is included with each Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence. At build-out, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will include luxury residences in 12 buildings, a spacious and distinctive clubhouse, Center for Healthy Living, an Assisted Living and Memory Care facility, and three spectacular 80,000 square feet gardens designed by JRL Landscape Design Studios of Naples.

Created by Lori Wegman, Principal, and Heather Grey, Design Director of Wegman Design Group, the entry lobbies will convey an understated elegance within a Mediterranean vernacular. Each of the designs will take cues from the exterior architecture that includes inviting entrances with arrival courtyards showcasing low walls, ornamental railings, ironwork decorative elements, a two-tiered water feature, and colorful plantings.  The low walls will keep the entry open while still giving the sense of an arrival space.  Wegman and Grey have carried the tone of the exterior arrival areas into the lobbies where tall windows will flood the spaces with natural light and provide a pleasing view of the decorative details and plantings outside.

“Creating the lobby designs was truly a balancing act,” said Lori Wegman, Principal, Wegman Design Group. “We combined eye-catching art, clean lines, and ornately crafted wood and metal accents to create four unique and inviting spaces to be enjoyed by the residents and their guests.”

Each of the four lobbies will convey a unique character within the Mediterranean theme. Backgrounds in warm neutral tones will play against textural elements on the walls and flooring, and will be accented by decorative architectural elements, including elegant ceiling details, and attractive artwork. Flat screen monitors in each lobby will provide residents with daily and weekly information about activities and events occurring on the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks campus. A digital screen will allow visitors to contact individual building residents. Elevators will lead to a common area hallway on each floor where residents and guests will be greeted by elegant mahogany doors flanked by side lights at each residence entrance.

The Building A lobby will be presented in a color palette featuring a rich neutral tone with a honey-colored accent, stone influences, and wood accented ceilings. Decorative lighting fixtures will showcase iron details that call to mind the exterior ironwork. Clean-lined furnishings with wooden details will convey Mediterranean influences. A decorative wooden console table set beneath the flat screen monitor will feature carvings that present a rich, elegant look.

Building B’s Mediterranean style will reflect a more minimalist approach with neutral backgrounds, black and honey colored wood accents, and decorative iron lighting fixtures. Textures in the furnishing and wall accents will provide an additional layer to the design. Impressive art pieces will contribute pops of color against the neutral wall tones. In keeping with the Mediterranean design, a pair of niches will showcase artwork. The niche walls will be finished with a pearlescent champagne-toned leather fabric in a brick pattern. A cultural iron table lamp will provide additional visual interest.

Ironwork influences will be apparent in the furnishings and decorative lighting presented in Building C. Rich colors, including red Venetian plaster, will be found throughout the space. Draperies used as wall treatments will be presented in a Mediterranean pattern of red, gold, and a bit of blue. A warm upholstered chair with a leather look will bring additional balance to the design.

The Building D lobby design will incorporate numerous wood and iron features, including a wood accent detail that will be featured on the ceiling. Decorative iron elements will be included in the lobby’s niches and set against burnt orange Venetian plaster backgrounds. Decorative iron lighting fixtures will be counter-balanced by a heavier upholstered chair. The upholstery is in a pattern inspired by Misonni, a revered Italian designer known for his unique blending of colors.

Just three residences remain available at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks. The remaining residences offer views either of a lushly landscaped central pedestrian and golf cart corridor lined with royal palm trees that will link the three gardens and the community's three neighborhoods, or of the award-winning Estuary at Grey Oaks golf course. Three floor plan choices priced from $1.4 million provide an opportunity to transition to a spacious, elegantly appointed home in a carefree, maintenance-free environment. Each floor plan is designed to enhance the vibrant Moorings Park at Grey Oaks day-to-day living and entertaining experience.

Beautifully designed and spacious, each of the remaining two-bedroom plus den, two-and-a-half bath Moorings Park at Grey Oaks Garden Home floor plans includes a private elevator vestibule, entry courtyard, spacious great room, adjoining island-kitchen and breakfast area, a wet bar, vaulted ceilings and a large master suite with walk-in closets and a beautiful master bath. The Verde and Indigo floor plans offer spacious lanais and balconies with an entertainment bar that offer a perfect setting for entertaining family members and friends. The elegant 2,873 and 3,007 square feet floor plans come with premium quality finishes, including porcelain tile flooring in the living areas, wood flooring in the den, carpeted bedrooms, granite kitchen countertops, marble countertops in the baths and maple cabinetry in various styles and stains. Products from high quality brand names such as Kohler, Jenn-Air, Kitchen Craft, Dynasty, Omega, Keyes Granite, Mohawk Flooring and others are included. Optional features and finishes are available.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks reported late last month that Phase I construction permits have been approved by the City of Naples for the first four residential buildings, the guardhouse, and the Aqua Gardens’ pool cabana at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks. The Phase I building pads have been prepared and foundation work is underway. Phase I utility construction work is progressing. Current plans call for an October 1, 2015 Phase I completion date followed by a February 1, 2016 completion of Phase II construction.

Moorings Park’s Center for Healthy Living Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary

Moorings Park, a Continuing Care Retirement Community located at 120 Moorings Park Drive in Naples, will celebrate the one-year anniversary of the opening of its Center for Healthy Living with a reception this Wednesday, June 4 at 4:00 p.m. The 37,000-square-foot innovation in health care and wellness opened on May 7, 2013 after five years of research, planning and construction.

The Center for Healthy Living's mission is to help patients achieve the highest level of independence in their day-to-day activities within their home and community. The Center offers personalized physician services, integrated rehabilitation programs, and licensed professional staff specializing in geriatrics. Its features include customized cardio and strength programming geared toward seniors, as well as cognitive and memory training. Highly skilled, licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists establish treatment plans with patients and their physicians that are customized to meet specific needs. The Center includes the state-of-the-art Sheffield Theatre that is suitable for feature films and lectures, the full-service Rejuvenate Salon and Spa, and a Max-Wellness retail store staffed by trained wellness advocates with products ranging from natural vitamins and supplements to fitness items and mobility devices. As evidenced by robust sales throughout its first year of operation, the residents of Moorings Park are taking full advantage of the products offered at Max-Wellness. As an additional benefit, residents are afforded the opportunity to socialize with friends over healthy fare and beverages at the Center for Healthy Living’s Internet Café. The Center’s amenities are designed to integrate technology, relaxation, and luxury so residents can comfortably manage all facets of wellness.

“The Center for Healthy Living is designed to enhance the services and amenities available to residents,” said Moorings Park CEO Dan Lavender. “This resident-focused, physician-based service further differentiates Moorings Park from other continuing care retirement communities. It continues to improve the delivery of health care to our residents, expand our knowledge of the aging process, introduce new approaches to care that celebrate the positive aspects of aging, and optimize vitality and happiness.”

Moorings Park's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Gloth, a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society, oversees Moorings Park's fellowship-trained Geriatricians and a Physician Services Program designed to provide participants patient-centered medical care on campus at the Center for Healthy Living through the community's Primary Care and Primary Care Plus programs. Delivering personalized healthcare based on a model akin to a traditional family practice, the Primary Care Program offers patients care that emphasizes accessibility, personal attention and compassion. The program is available to residents of Moorings Park with no additional fees other than typical co-pays. Third-party billing to Medicare occurs for services when appropriate. During the Center for Healthy Living’s first year, over 250 patients enrolled in the Primary Care Program, a number that exceeded expectations for the inaugural year and provided an opportunity to hire an additional Geriatrician.

The Primary Care Plus Program offers an enhanced program of healthcare that is available for an additional fee. This expanded program offers all of the benefits of the Primary Care Program, as well as a wide scope of special services that provide uniquely customized care for each participant. Essential components of the Primary Care Plus Program include exclusive Geriatrician access, a personal healthcare program, a personal care coordinator, individual treatment recommendations, physician supervised hospital care and direct physician communication.

"With The Center for Healthy Living, we are engaged in a truly original concept among retirement communities,” said Dr. Gloth. “It is unique as a ‘wellness’ center in its depth and variety of services, and unsurpassed in its diagnostic equipment and design. The continuum of care available through the services and facilities at the Center for Healthy Living offers security for our residents. It allows us to treat people in the office and to interact with them in other settings. We have the ability to coordinate exercise, out-patient rehabilitation, and nutrition with what is happening on the medical side. That allows us to provide a more holistic model for healthcare overall. When you hear expressions like ‘60 is the new 30,’ those expressions are about how much healthier and independent individuals are at later stages of their life today. The model we have emphasizes healthy living and overall health and well-being. There are the things we can do earlier that pay huge dividends in terms of optimizing functional survival and the ability to be active as you get older and retain that independence.”

The fitness center at the Center for Healthy Living has proved to be a popular destination for Moorings Park residents. The fitness center offers group fitness classes - including cycling classes - lead by certified exercise specialists and using a variety of equipment, including hand weights, bands, medicine balls and an assortment of balance accessories. The term "wellness" takes on a whole new meaning in the fitness center's heavily utilized Cardio/Strength Area. Individualized programs encompass balance, flexibility, bone mass preservation and low-impact cardio training utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Personal training services are also available and being employed by a constantly increasing number of residents.

In addition to the benefits it provides to Moorings Park’s residents, the Center for Healthy Living has served as the host venue for the Collier County Medical Society’s Lecture Series. Held in the Center’s elegant Sheffield Theatre, the well-attended and well-received Lecture Series has included a number of distinguished speakers, including those from Johns Hopkins, Columbia, and University of Miami medical schools. Doctors and nurses attending the Lecture Series have qualified for their CME credits.

LEED is an acronym for “Leadership in Energy and Environment Design.” At build-out, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will include luxury residences in 12 buildings, a spacious and distinctive clubhouse, Center for Healthy Living, an Assisted Living and Memory Care facility, and three spectacular 80,000 square feet gardens designed by JRL Landscape Design Studios of Naples. As planned, every element of the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks campus will meet or exceed LEED Certification requirements.

LEED Certification requires a fully-integrated design, construction, and operational process that begins at the earliest conceptual levels and continues through finished building maintenance education and practices. Led by Moorings Park’s Executive Director of Facilities Jim Krall, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ architect, engineers, construction contractor, material suppliers, interior designer, custodial personnel, and each building’s end-users and occupants all play a role in the process.

The LEED process includes a very strict design, engineering, and construction program that minimizes air infiltration and protects against energy losses by providing a tight building envelope. At the same time, once completed, the building’s air-handling design must refresh the indoor air while preventing pollution intrusion. U.S. Energy Code Star rated appliances, energy efficient faucets to control the amount of water that is wasted, high efficiency air conditioning systems, non-Freon refrigerators, and glues, paints and stains with low Volatile Organic Compound levels must all be included. During construction, waste materials such as drywall and rebar must be segregated and recycled, and the landscaping irrigation systems must be designed to utilize re-used water.

“The LEED building process is intended to provide healthier, more efficient structures that benefit the environment, the buildings’ end-users and occupants, and the overall community,” said Krall. “The tight building envelope required for LEED Certification can cut energy use by as much as 60%. Due to the quality of the products and the green strategies used within the building, the structures on the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks campus will be more durable than non-certified structures. Most importantly, LEED Certified structures are simply healthier places to live and work. We will be devoting a great deal of time to educating our partners and residents about how we will be operating and maintaining the buildings on campus and the roles they play in keeping the LEED process going. Building green is an immediate and measurable way we can make a difference for the environment. This project and three completed LEED Certified buildings on the Moorings Park Goodlette-Frank Road campus serve as examples to the community of the benefits of building green and recycling.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks presents an opportunity to enjoy a holistic approach to living well in an enclave of elegant residences that provides the high-quality continuum of care and lifestyle programs of a renowned retirement community along with the amenities and activities of Grey Oaks Country Club. A Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club is included with each Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence. With Phase I construction underway, and Phase II sold out, a limited number of residences remain available. Three floor plan choices priced from $1.4 million provide an opportunity to transition to a spacious, elegantly appointed home in a carefree, maintenance-free environment. Each floor plan is designed to enhance the vibrant Moorings Park at Grey Oaks day-to-day living and entertaining experience.

Retirees Securing Future Lifestyle at Younger Age

With Baby Boomers retiring in increasing numbers, so, too, is their desire to secure their long-term retirement lifestyle. For today’s retirees, security is multi-faceted and encompasses a plethora of concerns. Finances and exactly what the available resources can provide over the long-haul remains a prime consideration. But for Baby Boomers who have always taken great pride in their independence, security is far more than a dollars and cents conversation. Today, key considerations include knowing they will be living in an active environment with like-minded people; knowing they will have the freedom to downsize and still live in spacious quarters conducive to entertaining family and friends; knowing they will be able to “age in place” without having to relocate multiple times; and knowing their long-term needs will be met with dignity and compassion.

As one might expect, Baby Boomers who have either fully retired or are on the brink of a full retirement have demonstrated a preference for making and securing their retirement lifestyle decisions at a younger age, thereby allowing themselves the freedom to continue living their lives as they see fit while knowing their long-term needs will be met. This trend has been evident at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks, a community being developed adjacent to Estuary at Grey Oaks at the corner of Airport-Pulling Road and Golden Gate Parkway. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks presents a limited opportunity to enjoy the best of a holistic approach to living well in an enclave of elegant garden homes that provides the high-quality healthcare and lifestyle programs of a renowned Continuing Care Retirement Community along with the ambiance, amenities and activities of Grey Oaks Country Club. A Grey Oaks Sports Membership in included with each Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence.

"The majority of the depositors who have secured reservations at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks are in their mid to late 60’s or early 70’s,” said Moorings Park at Grey Oaks Director of Sales Gina Paris. “They are active individuals who are intent on securing a lifestyle that allows them to live on their own terms while enjoying all that Grey Oaks Country Club offers along with the comprehensive continuum of care Moorings Park provides.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks offers a continuum of care designed to provide experiences customized to each resident right on campus. The community's lifestyle and continuum of care are provided at a predictable and affordable cost with no increase in monthly fees if a change in the level of care is required. Residents have the security of knowing their long-term needs will be met without having to relocate off campus. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care includes medical care provided by fellowship-trained Geriatricians overseen by Moorings Park's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Gloth, a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society.

"When you hear expressions like ‘60 is the new 30,’ those expressions are about how much healthier and independent individuals are at later stages of their life," said Dr. Gloth. "Gerontology is focused on what occurs in people as they age. The model we have emphasizes healthy living and overall health and well-being. There are the things we can do earlier that pay huge dividends in terms of optimizing functional survival and the ability to be active as you get older and retain that independence. The continuum of care offers security for our residents. We have the ability to coordinate exercise, out-patient rehabilitation, and nutrition with what is happening on the medical side. That allows us to provide a more holistic model for healthcare overall.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ innovative Center for Healthy Living will offer doctor's office visits, a fitness center, out-patient physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. The Center for Healthy Living's goal is to help patients achieve the highest level of independence in their day-to-day activities within their home and community. Highly skilled, licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists will establish a treatment plan with the patient and their physician that is customized to their specific needs.

Plans also call for Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care to include an Extended Congregate Care Licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center that offers compassionate care in a family-friendly atmosphere. As planned, the Center will feature 64 luxurious, private one-bedroom suites with kitchenettes and a full bath. In addition to licensed professional care, the Center is slated to provide 24-hour Emergency Nursing Service; assistance with Activities of Daily Living, including bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication assistance; rehabilitative therapy; respite care; social and life enrichment activities; and Nursing and Supportive services, including social services, counseling, and emotional and family support.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ residents will enjoy an elegant Clubhouse designed to serve as the community’s central gathering place. The Clubhouse will include a bar lounge and casual and formal dining. The dining room will feature outdoor seating overlooking a resort-style pool. The Clubhouse Bistro will serve breakfast and lunch. A full service spa and salon are also planned. Gathering rooms and social spaces will be available for meetings, gaming, and private parties. In addition to recreational activities such as billiards, bridge, mahjong, card games, bocce ball or lawn bowling, a variety of social and cultural programs will be available. Residents will also have access to many of the amenities at Moorings Park's Goodlette-Frank Road campus, including the Center for Healthy Living that includes fitness, theatre, spa and salon services, dining at the elegant Trio dining venue, and an invitation to the Bower Chapel Concert Series and worship services.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks has secured 95% of the reservations required to begin Phase I construction. Phase I will include completion of the community's first 32 two-bedroom plus den, two-and-a-half bath garden home residences in four buildings and is expected to begin early second quarter, 2014. Phase I will also include completion of the Aqua Gardens that features a resort-style pool with lush landscaping. At build-out, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will include 96 luxury residences in 12 buildings.

"The garden home residences provide retirees an opportunity to downsize to a spacious, elegantly appointed home in a totally maintenance-free environment," said Paris. "Many retirees downsize to a more modestly sized home only to have to move again when more immediate care is necessary. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks can eliminate the need to move more than once. Owners will enjoy the security of knowing everything they will need for years to come is in place. Because so many of our Phase I depositors are in their 60’s and early 70’s, we believe that once Moorings Park at Grey Oaks is sold out, it will be some time before residences become available.”

A Professional, Compassionate Continuum of Care at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks

For retirees, quality of life is determined by the freedom to enjoy an active lifestyle and the security of knowing their long-term needs will be met. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks is an exciting new community that offers a holistic approach to living well in an enclave of garden homes that provides the high-quality continuum of care and lifestyle programs of a renowned retirement community along with the amenities of Grey Oaks Country Club. A Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club is included with each Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks offers a continuum of care designed to provide experiences customized to each resident right on campus. That continuum of care includes medical care provided by fellowship-trained Geriatricians overseen by Moorings Park's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Gloth, a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society.

“As children, our medical needs were overseen by a Pediatrician,” said Dr. Gloth. “As we grew into adulthood, we relied on Family Practitioners or Internists. Retirees have medical needs that are different than they were not too long ago. Gerontology is a field of medicine that addresses issues associated with aging. There’s a difference between internal medicine or family medicine and what we’re doing with our knowledge about aging and geriatric medicine. Risk factors change as people age. Working with physicians who have the understanding of what those physiological changes mean is an advantage for individuals who are aging."

Dr. Gloth and his team will play an essential role in providing Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care. Their individualized treatment plans will take full advantage of the community's Center for Healthy Living and Extended Congregate Care licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center.

"The continuum of care offers security for our residents," said Dr. Gloth. "It allows us to treat people in the office and to interact with them in other settings. We have the ability to coordinate exercise, out-patient rehabilitation, and nutrition with what is happening on the medical side. That allows us to provide a more holistic model for healthcare overall. When you hear expressions like ‘60 is the new 30,’ those expressions are about how much healthier and independent individuals are at later stages of their life today. The model we have emphasizes healthy living and overall health and well-being. There are the things we can do earlier that pay huge dividends in terms of optimizing functional survival and the ability to be active as you get older and retain that independence.”

Aging involves transitions ranging from relocating, to forming new friendships, managing unforeseen medical issues, or even losing a spouse or loved one. Recognizing and appreciating the stress that accompanies life transitions is something to which Dr. Gloth and the Geriatricians at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks are especially attentive.

"Leaving familiar surroundings, meeting new people, losing a degree of independence due to a medical issue, seeing a new physician, or losing a spouse can be stressful and impact a person's overall health," said Dr. Gloth. "We are there to provide care that can make those transitions a little easier. Our Geriatric Nurse Practitioner Jennifer Coats and Master Level Social Worker Casey Eike are especially effective in working and interacting with patients throughout the transition. The personal interactions we have with patients are tremendously helpful. With new patients, we conduct a comprehensive geriatric assessment that allows us to understand that individual and to ensure the principals that are applied, the care plan that evolves, and the medications that are used are appropriate for that individual.”

Dr. Gloth’s team and network of medical professionals includes geriatric nurses, an osteoporosis specialist, cancer specialists, ophthalmologists working in the Center for Healthy Living’s state-of-the-art eye laboratory, and visiting physicians specializing in cardiology, podiatry, traumatology, neuropsychiatry, and other disciplines. While their professional expertise is exceptional, their level of caring and compassion is extraordinary.

“I have never been any place where I’ve been as impressed by how genuine the caring is at Moorings Park - the same degree of caring we will provide at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks,” said Dr. Gloth. “Not just in terms of providing care, but in terms of taking a real interest in the residents. The medical team genuinely cares and you see it everywhere. You cannot provide the level of care we’re able to provide unless you have support from leadership and the leadership at Moorings Park is remarkable. They have a genuine interest in providing simply the best to the residents. We wouldn’t have the program we have if somebody years ago didn’t say ‘We are really going to be challenged by health care down the road and we want to be ready for whatever is coming.’ That vision and leadership has continued and what we’ve accomplished in just a couple of years since I’ve been here is astounding.”

"We chose Moorings Park at Grey Oaks because it will be a community where one doesn't have to be a senior or act like a senior.  We are moving there not because we want to slow down, but because we want to have as much time as possible to do what we want and not worry about the responsibility of being a homeowner.  We could say we are excited, but that would be an understatement!"

"We feel that at this time of our lives, while it is relatively easy for us to move, we find that Moorings Park at Grey Oaks is the very best available community in which to retire.”

"Our unit will be brand new, spacious and state of the art for a retirement community. Even though we will not have title to the unit we are buying, it is almost the same as being an owner since we can leave at any time and get 90% of the purchase price back. Since construction has not yet begun, we have plenty of time to decide when to put our house on the market."

Situated in the heart of Naples, at the intersection of Airport-Pulling Road and Golden Gate Parkway near The Estuary at Grey Oaks, the magnificent 16-acre community will take shape amidst a backdrop of natural beauty.

Executive Report from Dan Lavender, CEO


Our mission at Moorings Park has been defined over the years as providing simply the best facilities and services for successful aging. And we do so with professional and compassionate care for every person we serve. But, it’s not just a mission, it’s a commitment we take very seriously.

It begins with the basics and can be found in all facets of our organization. Simply stated, each and every department at Moorings Park creates an annual business plan with targeted, measurable results. With clearly defined goals in hand, reports are generated each month and are compared to the benchmarks we set for ourselves. Such measures allow us to identify any gaps in performance. Once those gaps are identified, cross-functional process improvement teams serve to implement a formal quality improvement process and performance levels are brought back to the highest levels of service possible.

The result? We like to say, “simply the best,” and we’re not the only ones who feel the same way. Consider for instance, the fact that The Chateau, our skilled nursing facility, recently received the Governor’s Gold Seal Award making us one of only 24 CCRCs in the state to carry this honor out of 700 possible recipients. The Chateau has also received a 5-star rating from the Center for Medicare Services. It is joined by our Independent Living Facility that has received accreditation from both CARF and CCAC while our Home Health Agency is accredited by CHAP. Add all of these to our A+ ratings from both Standard & Poor and Fitch ratings services and it’s easy to see why we are “Simply the Best.”

We look forward to bringing those same levels of service to Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

We hope you will read on, learn more and explore the possibilities. A vibrant, active and healthful future awaits you at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks!


Executive Report from Dan Lavender, CEO


For Dan Lavender, Chief Executive Officer, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks began with a glimmer of an idea that fit perfectly into his big vision. It all started with a friendly conversation with Jim Butler, Grey Oaks’ general manager, more than three years ago. Since then, the two communities have embarked on a unique and innovative partnership between two great brands designed to benefit their residents and the community at large.

Mr. Lavender explains that the timing is just right.

“Moorings Park is perfectly positioned to help seniors manage their own health and to maintain an active lifestyle for as long as possible,” he says. “Our comprehensive amenities and programs exceed all standards for socialization, intellectual stimulation and physical well-being.”

Together, Moorings Park and Grey Oaks are setting the stage for a new paradigm for senior living.

“Joining with Grey Oaks is a natural progression of our Mission Statement,” relates Mr. Lavender. “Our mission is ‘to provide simply the best facilities and services for successful aging with professional and compassionate care to each person we serve.’ And with the development of our newest community, we are doing just that.”


Envisioning the Ideal Lifestyle


When asked about the new Moorings Park neighborhood at Grey Oaks, General Manager, Jim Butler exclaims, “We are very excited!” He explained that Grey Oaks members and residents have been asking for a way to continue their current lifestyle as they transition into an older age group. They are delighted to discover that their dream will become a reality.

“As we celebrate our 20th anniversary, our original residents are now between 70 and 85 years old,” says Mr. Butler. “Most are still playing golf or tennis, working out and attending club events. They enjoy a fulfilling life at Grey Oaks and don’t want to change. Our new Moorings Park community, the first of its kind, will enable them to continue with the lifestyle they envision for themselves.”

With three terrific championship golf courses, two fitness centers, and a diverse range of activities including music and the arts, there is ample opportunity for residents to continue with their active lifestyle as they know it.

“Moorings Park and Grey Oaks share similar goals to provide the best for our members and residents and to encourage their pursuit of good health, cultural fulfillment and an active lifestyle,” concluded Mr. Butler. “Moorings Park at Grey Oaks embodies that vision.”


The Key to Wellness:


Coordinated Care for the Whole Person


Residents of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks have even more to look forward to than golf, tennis and a busy social calendar. They can also anticipate access to world class, on-campus healthcare overseen by Chief Medical Officer, F. Michael Gloth, III, M.D.

A fellowship trained geriatrician and an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Geriatric Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Dr. Gloth has already accomplished significant milestones in his first year at Moorings Park. Here is just a sampling:

  • Developed a Physicians’ Council comprised of retired Moorings Park physicians

  • Improved The Chateau experience, ramping up the program and achieving 5-Star status in nursing homes across the nation

  • Created a comprehensive healthcare program so residents rarely have to leave campus

  • Implemented a new paradigm for Geriatrics that looks at each individual’s chronic conditions, medications, fitness and nutrition to coordinate care for the whole person

“We are creating a dynamic environment in our community that takes a global approach to healthcare,” says Dr. Gloth. “There is great vision and great leadership at Moorings Park and Moorings Park at Grey Oaks that is taking us in an exciting direction.”


Community Landscape Vision in Full Bloom


As Moorings Park at Grey Oaks becomes a reality, Jim Krall, Executive Director of Facilities, will work closely with JRL Landscape Design to bring that community’s vision to life through its outdoor spaces. There will be three neighborhoods, each with a theme that is defined by its landscape: one designed for water activities with fountains and a resort-style pool; a second featuring a garden theme that includes a butterfly garden and a fragrance garden; and a third with lawn bowling and bocce.

“We are providing a lifestyle that nurtures successful aging through everything that we do,” Mr. Krall comments. “Landscape design is an integral component of the big picture.”

Moorings Park has been nationally recognized as a “green” community where environmental efforts are a top priority. This focus will most definitely carry over to Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

“One of the main reasons people come here is for the lush greenery and vivid natural scenery,” Mr. Krall concludes. “At Moorings Park at Grey Oaks, we will continue to create some of Naples’ most beautiful, relaxing and inspiring outdoor spaces for our residents to enjoy.”


The Builder’s View:


A Foundation Built on Quality and Lifestyle


As Executive Vice President of developer CC Devco, LLC, Andres Miyares is delighted by the collaboration with two great entities: Moorings Park and Grey Oaks. The company already has a history of building condominiums and single-family homes at Grey Oaks, and they are excited about bringing the same quality and luxury lifestyle to the new venture with Moorings Park.

“We believe that Naples is an attractive place to build,” said Mr. Miyares. “We believe in the area and we plan to continue to build relationships in this community.”

CC Devco provides the depth and breadth of experience needed to achieve the goals for the new neighborhood. The firm is led by Mr. Armando Codina and Mr. Jim Carr, two of the most respected names in the development industry, with more than 66 years of combined experience in the Florida real estate market.

Armando Codina, through the company he founded, Codina Partners, is engaged in multiple real estate development and investment activities. The firm’s portfolio includes mixed-used projects, commercial buildings, and other investments primarily in Florida.

Project highlights include Monterra in Cooper City, which in 2011 was the second fastest growing community in the state of Florida, and Traditions which is a joint venture with Halstatt in Naples.

“We are very happy about this partnership,” concludes Mr. Miyares. “We are greatly looking forward to meeting and exceeding the expectations of the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residents.”


Director of Sales Welcomes New Opportunities


For Gina Paris, Moorings Park’s Director of Sales, the coming together of Moorings Park and Grey Oaks is a natural. She says it’s all about feeling younger and staying younger – something that both communities offer to their residents through their rich cultures of activities, lifestyle and personal fulfillment.

“Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will be attractive to people who are a bit younger in their thinking and in their activity level,” explains Gina. “With access to the clubhouse, sports memberships, and a vast array of other activities, there is so much that will appeal to a range of generations.”

Along with sales associate Connie Bohl, Gina will work out of Grey Oaks’ Realty office, implementing the same educational sales approach they have always had: sharing information and educating forward-thinking people about their future.

“Moorings Park and Grey Oaks share a reputation as being exclusive,” Gina continued. “The new large garden homes with high end personalized finishes will continue that tradition.”

Benefits to reserving early? Gina says there are many, but to name just a few: after a financial and medical assessment, approval will be locked in based on current circumstances; contracts are 90% refundable; and value pricing with a lower entry fee will be offered for the first few new residents.

We hope you will read on, learn more and explore the possibilities. A vibrant, active and healthful future awaits you at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks!


Trio’s a Charm:


Chef Marc serves up delicious, healthful cuisine


For Chef Marc Braden, good restaurant hospitality means a warm hello, a friendly accommodating staff and sensational cuisine. Residents will discover all three at Trio, Moorings Park’s newest restaurant.

Trio opened to rave reviews and high praise for Chef Marc, a graduate from Sullivan University in Louisville, KY. Catering to residents’ varying tastes and requests, Chef Marc develops rotating menus on a bi-weekly basis that focus on Modern American Cuisine with fresh ingredients and reinterpreted classics.

In keeping with the community’s priority for a healthy lifestyle, the staff makes sure to include many gluten-free and heart friendly options – for example, crab cakes with no breadcrumbs and several seafood and lean meat selections. Marc says that the featured steak and scallops are always popular, and he is intent on working with “whatever is fresh.”

Residents will also discover an array of special accommodations including specially prepared dinners at the Chef’s Table overlooking the open kitchen. Or private dining for notable occasions in the community room. Chef Marc even recently presented a seven course Spanish wine tasting dinner in a resident’s home.


Celebrating the Best of Both Worlds


Thoughts from Steve Brinkert, Vice President of Resident Services at Moorings Park


What happens when you bring together the ultimate selection of lifestyle amenities with the finest healthcare services available today? The result is a world-class community dedicated to aging successfully.

Steve Brinkert, Vice President of Resident Services, has revealed a few highlights of their joint venture with Grey Oaks. The new neighborhood features a beautifully appointed clubhouse that encompasses two dining venues, a resort-style pool, lectures, films, card playing and spa and salon services.

What’s more, residents will have peace of mind knowing that The Center for Healthy Living is located right on site, a satellite of the Moorings Park facility. Here, a Physicians’ Services Clinic with experienced geriatrician, rehabilitation area, state-of-the-art fitness center and more will pave the way for an enriched path to successful aging. Assisted living and memory care facilities are also available at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

Set amid elegantly landscaped vistas divided into three nature-themed neighborhoods, spectacular garden homes offer a private elevator opening into a grand entry. Open great rooms lead to oversized lanais enhanced by magnificent panoramic views.

“We are extremely pleased about this partnership with Grey Oaks,” says Mr. Brinkert. “Together, we are creating something that no one has seen before – not in our community and perhaps nowhere in the U.S.”

The Sales Center opened in May at Grey Oaks with two full time sales people, bringing the community to life with vivid graphics and a detailed virtual tour.

Executive Notes from the CEO

Dan Lavender

President & CEO

Moorings Park has been here for over 30 years. And as such, we’ve seen a lot of changes including watching Naples grow up around us. Some of those changes have inspired us to formulate the plans we recently announced for Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

But first, let me give you a little background on our decision to develop what we think will be a very exciting project for the City of Naples.

Several things led to the development of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks. We have a very strategic board that is always thinking ahead and seeing how we can meet the needs of the community. We are a very mission focused organization providing simply the best facilities and services for successful aging with professional and compassionate care to each person we service. At the same time, you have Grey Oaks getting to a point where their residents are starting to demand the services we provide. So you have two great things: a strategic organization striving to meet the needs of the community and a development with a fairly newfound desire for the services we offer. It’s like a Reese’s peanut butter cup where you have a great thing like chocolate and a great thing like peanut butter coming together to make something even better.

But don’t take our word for it. I invite you to come and visit us in the Grey Oaks sales center for more details and a lot about the lifestyle that you are going to be able to enjoy at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

A Few Thoughts from Steve Brinkert


Steve Brinkert, Vice President of Resident Services

We are extremely pleased to have broken ground on Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ Phase I. The April 16th Groundbreaking Celebration was an historic occasion for Moorings Park, and we were thrilled to share it with our future residents. Their excitement and sense of anticipation was palpable.

The response to the combination of Moorings Park’s continuum of care and the Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club included with every Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence continues to be enthusiastic and a source of excitement for both our future residents and visitors to the Sales Center. Grey Oaks is the premier country club in Southwest Florida, and the recipient of numerous national awards that acknowledge the quality of the club experience it provides. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residents will enjoy Grey Oaks’ world-class amenities, including full golf privileges, from May 1 through October 31 and selected amenities throughout the year.

We are also excited by the introduction of the Perla penthouse-style floor plan. This new plan expands the lifestyle choices available to future residents at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks and offers new possibilities for entertaining family members and guests.

Now is the time to begin planning your future. With Phase I construction underway, and Phase II sold out, opportunities for enjoying the promise of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care and the active Grey Oaks Country Club lifestyle are becoming limited. Reservations are now being accepted for Phase III, the last residential phase at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks. We invite you to enjoy a personalized visit and a detailed virtual tour of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks with one of our professional sales counselors.

I hope to see you soon.

Making New Friends


Bob Janess, John Risk & Jon Lassus

With its exciting array of activities and events, and a Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club, Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ active lifestyle will present numerous opportunities for developing new friendships. For three gentlemen who, along with their wives, have made reservations for residences in Moorings Park at Grey Oaks, a new friendship has already taken shape.

After undergoing different types of surgeries, Jon Lassus, John Risk, and Bob Janess each entered The Chateau Rehabilitation Center at Moorings Park’s Goodlette-Frank Road campus. Serendipity brought them together, and now they will be friends and neighbors at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

“I was at the Chateau for twelve days,” said Jon Lassus. “Usually at lunchtime, the gentlemen who were there would get together. That’s how the three of us met and we became friends.”

“We completed our therapies successfully,” added John Risk with a smile. “The three of us eventually bought into Moorings Park at Grey Oaks. It’s really unique, and, I thought, unusual.”

“I hosted one of our monthly reunion luncheons,” said Lassus. “Bob and John in formed me they were moving to Moorings Parks at Grey Oaks. And I said, ‘Well I’ve been thinking about checking that out, so maybe I should.’ This is a downsize for us, of course, but this is the move we need to make.”

While the three friends come from different backgrounds, and currently live in different communities, they were all quick to see the value of the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks lifestyle. “I’m not looking at this as a lifestyle change - I’m looking at this as a continuation of the lifestyle we currently have,” said Bob Janess. “My wife and I know Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will be brand new, modern and what we’re used to. There are a lot of folks in their mid to upper 60’s and low 70’s. This seems to be an active group of people ready to live in a community where there’s so much to get involved in. There will be people who are older than I, but there will also be people who are younger.

"That will make it a very healthy community for us.”

“We lived in Bonita Bay for 14 years and made a lot of friends,” said Risk. “We have a three-story house with an elevator. I was convinced we could stay there and a nanny or caregiver could move in and care for us. It sounds easy, but it’s not. Now we can downsize while we’re able to make rational decisions rather than having somebody else do it for us. It’ll make it easier for our children.

We’ve become good friends with Bob and his wife. So right away we’ll have people we know and have a lot in common with.”

“It’s not going to be a lifestyle change for me at all,” said Lassus. “I’m living in Grey Oaks, and I’ll still be living in Grey Oaks. I play golf two or three times a week, and that won’t change. My life will be a lot simpler and I’m looking forward to that. If I were to pass, there’s no problem. My wife could still live there because everything is taken care of. And the same thing if she passes. It’s thinking about the future. This is the best thing and the smartest thing we’ve done in our whole lives.”

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks is Going Green!


Moorings Park at Grey Oaks has been designed and is being built with the intention of achieving LEED Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. LEED is an acronym for “Leadership in Energy and Environment Design.” LEED Certification requires a fully integrated design and construction process that begins at the earliest conceptual levels and continues through finished building maintenance practices.

“Everyone involved has to be on board,” said Moorings Park’s Executive Director of Facilities, Jim Krall. “The architect, engineers, construction contractor, material suppliers, interior designer, maintenance personnel, and the building’s occupants are all part of the process.”

The LEED process includes a very strict construction program that minimizes air infiltration and protects against energy losses by providing a tight building envelope. U.S. Energy Code Star rated appliances, low volume faucets to control the amount of water that’s wasted, high efficiency air conditioning systems, non-Freon refrigerators, and glues, paints and stains with low Volatile Organic Compound levels are all included. During construction, waste materials such as drywall and rebar are segregated and recycled. Landscaping irrigation systems are designed to utilize re-used water. Once completed, the building’s air-handling design refreshes the indoor air while preventing pollution intrusion.

“A LEED Certified building is a healthier, more efficient building,” said Krall. “It’s good for the environment, it’s good for the residents, and it’s good for Moorings Park. “Moorings Park has made a commitment to LEED building practices and to being good stewards when it comes to the environment and recycling.”

A Commitment That Spans More Than 30 Years


CEO/President Dan Lavender and Student

Throughout its more than 30-year history, Moorings Park has held a leadership position, both as one of the only A+ S&P and Fitch rated Continuing Care Retirement Communities in the United States, and as an organization that has remained steadfast in its commitment to serving the community. At Moorings Park, that commitment is reflected in our Social Accountability program. Future residents of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will not only enjoy the benefits of a fulfilling lifestyle that includes an unparalleled continuum of care, they will also become part of a culture that seeks to be engaged with the community in ways that have a positive impact.

“One of the key values of Moorings Park is our commitment to our nonprofit model,” said Moorings Park CEO/President Dan Lavender. “As a result, in order to operate in a way that enhances our community, we are committed to a Social Accountability program. We define Social Accountability by our commitment to our mission, stakeholders, and the greater community. As such, we make our facilities available to other non-profit institutions. In addition, we partner with over 30 local community organizations, including the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Champions for Learning, Florida Gulf Coast University, Hodges University, Lorenzo Walker Project Explore, and Habitat for Humanity.”

“The development of a community is about much more than bricks and mortar,” added Vice President of Resident Services Steve Brinkert. “It’s about supporting those who need support, creating opportunities for people to enjoy better lives and make contributions of their own, and ensuring members of the community are empowered to realize their own unique potential. As our future residents at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will discover, our commitment to Social Accountability is not just another program. It is where we come from. It is how our staff and our residents choose to be directly involved with reinventing the greater Southwest Florida community every day.”


Education Foundation - Champions for Learning

Chapel at Moorings Park

What could be more important than positively impacting the lives of our community’s children and supporting those who have assumed responsibility for educating them? Champions for Learning is an independent, nonprofit, community-based organization that works across a broad spectrum to underscore and support the value of learning.

The Champions for Learning “Take Stock in Children” scholarship and mentoring program identifies eighth-grade students who are typically a first generation student to be college bound. Mentors work with the students as they complete eighth grade, make the transition to high school, and become involved with their high school curriculum. The program supports students throughout high school as long as academic and behavioral standards are met. Students who successfully complete the program receive a two-year college scholarship.

Moorings Park has hosted numerous events for the “Take Stock in Children” students and their parents, including an induction ceremony at the Bower Chapel that marks the beginning of the students’ participation in the program. Moorings Park residents Steve and Trudy Weisburg participate as Champions for Learning Board Members, and members of the Moorings Park community serve as “Take Stock in Children” mentors.

Champions for Learning recognizes Southwest Florida’s educators through its Golden Apple teacher recognition program that allows teachers to showcase in-classroom practices that are making a positive difference in the lives of their students. This year, Champions for Learning recognized the efforts of five teachers with $5,000 grants that will be used to share their practices with other teachers or to further their efforts within their schools or individual classrooms. Moorings Park’s Steve Brinkert has served as the Golden Apple Chairperson for the past two years, and Moorings Park has provided valuable financial assistance through an on-going sponsorship of the program.


Habitat for Humanity: A Hand-Up Not a Hand-Out


Moorings Park Resident Barbara Sill attends a Habitat for
Humanity home dedication

Moorings Park is honored to partner with Habitat for Humanity. Their mission - to build homes, communities, strong families, and a brighter future - has inspired many of our residents, employees and board members to make donations and volunteer. In addition, a dozen of our current employees enjoy home ownership thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

“Our goal is to eliminate poverty housing in our community,” said Lisa Lefkow, Executive Vice President, Habitat for Humanity Collier County. “We work with people from all walks of life to build and rebuild homes so that everybody, especially children, will have at least a simple and decent place to live. In Collier County, there’s a huge demand for housing within our service industry – those people who fill the critical jobs in housekeeping, maintenance, retail, agriculture, and construction that are typically the lowest wage sectors of our economy. There is a tremendous need for affordable home ownership right here and Moorings Park is partnering with us to fill that need.”

Habitat for Humanity recognizes the majority of families in need of viable housing cannot qualify for a conventional mortgage. Through the generosity of corporate and individual donations, Habitat provides interest-free mortgage loans. Homeowners are required to make a $1,000 down payment, provide 500 hours of “sweat equity” on the job site, and to make their mortgage payments.

Moorings Park has supported Habitat for Humanity’s “A Hand-Up, Not a Hand-Out” model for home ownership by underwriting one of Habitat’s most critical local marketing and educational pieces, an insert in the Naples Daily News that is distributed to nearly 100,000 readers. Moorings Park residents have hosted fundraising events in their homes, while other volunteers have used the community’s woodworking shop to build bookcases and prefabricate water heater panels and air handler stations that ultimately benefit numerous new Habitat homeowners.


The American Heart Association


CEO Dan Lavender, his wife Michele Lavender and
Moorings Park employee Cathy Mann participated in the
annual Heart Walk

The American Heart Association (AHA) is a nonprofit organization that fosters appropriate cardiac care in an effort to reduce disability and deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke. Public awareness, education and continued research are critical to the organization’s efforts. The AHA’s signature fundraising event is its annual Heart Walk. Moorings Park has been involved with the Collier County Heart Walk since 2007 and has been a major contributor every year since then.

“Moorings Park’s support of the Collier County Heart Walk is absolutely vital,” said Leslie Amick, Executive Director and Southwest Florida Market Vice President. “Their financial contributions help support lifesaving cardiovascular research and education, and their participation in the walk shows just how committed they are to raising awareness of heart health in the Collier community.”

Moorings Park served as the host venue for the Collier County Heart Walk Executive Breakfast, the kick-off event for the Collier County Heart Walk season. Moorings Park CEO Dan Lavender will chair the 2014 Collier County Heart Walk.

“Moorings Park goes above and beyond to support the American Heart Association,” said Amick. “Their leadership and staff can always be counted on to assist the organization in creative and innovative ways.”

Moorings Park is proud to serve on the Heart Ball Executive Leadership Team, to be an active participant in the AHA’s Fit-Friendly Companies program that recognizes organizations that go above and beyond when it comes to the health of their employees, and to encourage our partners and residents to wear red on National Wear Red Day, an event that raises awareness for the fight against heart disease, the number one killer of women. Over 160 residents and partners at Moorings Park’s Goodlette-Frank Road campus wore red on February 7 in support of the AHA’s 2014 National Wear Red Day.

These are just three of the organizations that Moorings Park and its residents support both financially and by donating our collective time and expertise. We invite you, the future residents of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks, to join us in making Collier County the best that it can be!

Chef Wendy Rennie’s Braised Short Ribs


Here’s a delectable recipe from Chef Wendy Rennie that we’re sure you, your family and friends will enjoy. Bon appétit!

Ingredients:

6 pounds meaty beef short ribs on the bone
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 celery stalks, coarsely chopped
1 carrot, peeled and coarsely chopped

1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 Fresno Chile, halved
1/2 cup tomato paste
5 sprigs of fresh thyme
3 salt-packed anchovy fillets, rinsed
(I use the equivalent in anchovy paste) 1 bay leaf

1 head of garlic, cloves peeled
1 quart (4 cups) chicken stock
2 cups dry red wine (I used Barefoot Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, $6.99 a bottle)
1/3 cup red wine vinegar

Wendy Rennie, Executive Chef

Remove the ribs from the refrigerator 30 minutes before you want to cook them. (I’m definitely a big believer in letting the meat come down to room temp before cooking.)

Preheat the oven to 325F. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large enameled cast-iron Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add half of the short ribs to the pan and cook on all sides until browned, a few minutes for each side. Transfer the ribs to a plate. Repeat with the remaining oil and ribs.

Pour off all but 2-3 tablespoons of fat from the pan. Add the celery, carrot, onion, and chile to the pan along with a large pinch of salt, and cook over medium heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, until glossy, about 2 minutes. Add the thyme sprigs, anchovies, bay leaf, and garlic and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the stock, wine, and vinegar and bring to a boil. Return the short ribs to the pan, cover, and braise in the oven for 1 hour.

What Our Future Residents Love About Us


Our future residents are extremely excited about the lifestyle they’ll enjoy at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks (MPGO). Moorings Park at Grey Oaks Director of Sales Gina Paris has enjoyed getting to know them and sharing their excitement.

“What has been notable is many of the people to whom we speak are in their 60’s and early 70’s,” said Gina. “Our future residents are very active people who are interested in securing their place at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks now. The combination of Grey Oaks’ energetic lifestyle and exceptional golf facilities along with the security of knowing their long-term needs will be met continues to resonate with those who have made reservations.

Here’s what some of our Future Residents have shared with Gina:

“We chose MPGO because it will be a community where one doesn’t have to be a senior or act like a senior. We are moving there not because we want to slow down, but because we want to have as much time as possible to do what we want and not worry about the responsibility of being a homeowner. We could say we are excited, but that would be an understatement!”

“We feel that at this time of our lives, while it is relatively easy for us to move, we find that MPGO is the very best available community in which to retire.”

“Our unit will be brand new, spacious and state of the art for a retirement community. Even though we will not have title to the unit we are buying, it is almost the same as being an owner since we can leave at any time and get 90% of the purchase price back. Since construction has not yet begun, we have plenty of time to decide when to put our house on the market.”

Mooring’s Park At Grey Oaks' Continuum of Care


As we age, our needs shift, sometimes to a point where specialized assistance is needed to maintain our quality of life. The level of care an assisted living center is licensed to provide can vary to a point where a resident may be required to move multiple times as changes in their level of care are needed.

Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residents will have the security of knowing their long-term needs will be met without having to relocate off campus. Our continuum of care includes an Extended Congregate Care (ECC) licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center that offers compassionate care in a family friendly atmosphere. The ECC license is a specialty license that allows Moorings Park at Grey Oaks to provide services beyond those allowed under a standard license. Our residents can “age in place” in a familiar, supportive setting knowing they will not have to move as changes in their level of care are required.

As planned, the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks ECC licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center will feature

64 luxurious, private one-bedroom suites with kitchenettes and a full bath. In addition to licensed professional care, the Center provides 24-hour emergency nursing service; assistance with activities of daily living; medication assistance; rehabilitative therapy; respite care; social and life enrichment activities; and nursing and supportive services, including social services, counseling, and emotional and family support.

The Center’s Memory Care services include activity programs designed to stimulate cognitive function and address individual needs. A social, home-like setting on each floor features private suites, a kitchen, dining room, and activity areas. Residents will be provided with an escort to the private dining room and activity areas. Licensed nursing personnel will monitor and coordinate the care needs of each resident. The individualized, resident-centered care and support is provided utilizing the Best Friends™ approach. Family participation is always welcomed at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks.

Meet Don & Jean Lein


A Harvard Business School graduate, military veteran, and CPA, Don Lein has been retired since April, 1992. His bride of 55 years, Jean, is the celebrated author of a cookbook named, naturally, “Lein Cuisine” - a collection of time-honored family recipes. Don and Jean are avid supporters of Habitat for Humanity - the proceeds from sales of “Lein Cuisine” were donated to Habitat and Don was on the Habitat board for eight years. For the past 20 years, Don and Jean have enjoyed a Port Royal residence filled with artwork and interesting artifacts. Last summer, they became one of the first to make a Moorings Park at Grey Oaks Phase 1 reservation.

“We like our house and thought we’d end up living here for the rest of our lives,” said Don. “It’s a big house. With all of the things we’ve collected, we didn’t think that would be fair to our children.

When Moorings Park at Grey Oaks first appeared in the paper, we thought there’s a real benefit to being in a new community and it would be easy to make friends and start another chapter in our lives. We also liked the scale.”

“One more move is all we can handle and it’s the right thing to do,” said Jean, as she continued mixing a batch of sugar cookies. “It will be 12 months to two years before the building is completed which gives us enough time. It’s a time frame that works for us.”

“This seems to be such a simple and well-planned program for people like us,” added Don. “It’s a nice-sized campus. We’ll have a golf cart and go over to the clubhouse. That’s going to work well for us. It’s an ideal setting. They considered everything. I think it’s perfect. It was an easy decision and that’s why we had two or three of our friends in Minnesota look at it and they signed up also.”

“At first, I thought ‘What will the children think about this?’” she said with a twinkle. “It turned out they were all relieved. I think they were very relieved they didn’t have to think about getting rid of our stuff!”

A few Thoughts From Steve Brinkert.


These are exciting times for Moorings Park and for the future residents of Moorings Parkat Grey Oaks. In particular, we are pleased to announce that we are close to achieving our sales targets ahead of schedule. As we approach the date of our Groundbreaking Celebration at the Grey Oaks campus, our sense of anticipation is palpable and a source of energy for the talented team that continues to bring the vision of Moorings Park at Grey Oaks to fruition.

We have been gratified by the market’s enthusiastic acceptance of the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks lifestyle concept. The combination of the community’s continuum of care, on-campus amenities, and the year-round Sports Membership at Grey Oaks Country Club that is included with every residence continues to have great appeal.

The response to the Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residence floor plans has been equally impressive. The spacious residences include elegant features and finishes and are meant to be lived in. Each floor plan is designed to be enjoyed on a day-to-day basis and to provide a welcoming ambiance that is ideal for hosting family members and friends.

Our future residents have also been delighted by our landscape design. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ unique setting has been meticulously created by one of Naples’ premier landscape architects and will have tremendous visual appeal. The design will be highlighted by three themed gardens, a variety of fountains, walking paths, and native plantings.

For many future residents, the single biggest attraction has been the security of knowing their long-term needs will be met without having to relocate off campus. The community’s Center for Healthy Living will offer doctor’s office visits, a fitness center, out-patient physical, occupational and speech therapy. If changes in a resident’s health occur Moorings Park at Grey Oak’s continuum of care includes an Extended Congregate Care Licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center that offers compassionate care in a family friendly atmosphere.

With every future resident event we hold, it is plain to see that friendships are being formed and common bonds are being solidified. Our future residents are active people who clearly enjoy being with one another and share a zest for life.

Simply The Best!


Moorings Park has been repeatedly acknowledged as Southwest Florida’s premier retirement community for more than 30 years and is the only Continuing Care Retirement Community located in the City of Naples. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residents will enjoy the benefits of a continuum of care designed to provide customized experiences right on campus.

The Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care includes a Center for Healthy Living designed to help residents achieve the highest level of independence in their day-to-day activities within their home and community. The Center for Healthy Living will offer doctor’s office visits, a fitness center, out-patient physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. Highly skilled, licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists will establish a customized treatment plan with the patient and their physician.

Moorings Park’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Gloth, a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society, will oversee Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ fellowship-trained geriatricians and a Physician Services program designed to provide participants patient-centered medical care on campus at the Center for Healthy Living through the community’s Primary Care and Primary Care Plus programs.

The fitness center at the Center for Healthy Living at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks will offer group fitness classes - including cycling - lead by certified exercise specialists using a variety of equipment. Individualized programs in the fitness center’s Cardio/Strength Area will encompass balance, flexibility, bone mass preservation and low-impact cardio training utilizing state-of-the-art equipment. Personal training services geared toward the individual needs of the resident, as well as a golf-centered Titleist Performance Institute program, will also be available.

As children, our medical needs were overseen by a pediatrician. As we grew into adulthood, we relied on family practitioners or internists to address our changing healthcare issues. Now, as we enter retirement, our medical needs are considerably different than they were not too long ago.

Gerontology is a field of medicine that addresses issues associated with aging. Moorings Park at Grey Oaks residents will receive medical care provided by fellowship-trained geriatricians overseen by Moorings Park’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Michael Gloth, a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and the American Geriatrics Society.

“There’s a big difference between internal medicine or family medicine and what we’re doing with our knowledge about aging and geriatric medicine,” said Dr. Gloth. “There are risk factors that change as people age. Working with a physician who has the expertise and understanding of what those physiological changes mean is an advantage for individuals who are aging.”

Dr. Gloth and his team will play an essential role in providing Moorings Park at Grey Oaks’ continuum of care. Their individualized treatment plans will take full advantage of the community’s Center for Healthy Living and Extended Congregate Care licensed Assisted Living and Memory Care Center.

“The continuum of care offers security for our residents,” said Dr. Gloth. “It allows us to treat people in the office and to interact with them in other settings. We can coordinate exercise, out-patient rehabilitation, and even nutrition with the medical side. That allows us to provide a more holistic model for healthcare overall. There are things we can do early on that pay huge dividends in optimizing functional survival and the ability to be active and retain independence as a patient gets older.”

Aging involves transitions in a person’s life. Recognizing and appreciating the stress that accompanies life transitions is something to which Dr. Gloth and the geriatricians at Moorings Park at Grey Oaks are especially attentive.

“Leaving familiar surroundings, meeting new people, losing a degree of independence due to a medical issue, seeing a new physician, or losing a spouse can be extremely stressful and impact a person’s overall health,” said Dr. Gloth. “We are there in a variety of ways to provide care that can make those transitions a little easier.”
