Vintage Burbank: Resort-Style Independent and Assisted Living

“It’s so beautiful here. Everyday I feel like I’m on vacation.”

Vintage Senior Living has just opened a new location, now in the heart of Burbank! This luxurious 8-story residence offers elegant apartments (available in 2- or 1- bedrooms, penthouses and studios) designed for independent and assisted living programs, and “Recollections,” a special memory care neighborhood. Vintage Senior Living, with 22 locations throughout Northern and Southern California and in Washington, has been recognized as a leader in senior and Alzheimer’s care.

Vintage Burbank is beautifully decorated with California resort-style elegance and boasts gorgeous mountain views. With comfort and socializing in mind, indoor and outdoor seating areas are nestled around cozy fireplaces and running fountains. Amenities include: a gym, a full-service beauty salon, screening room (for movie nights) with reclining leather sofa chairs, a library, bistro bar, restaurant, conference room, and a putting green. Three gourmet meals are served daily along with snacks and wine tastings. Other benefits include scheduled transportation, housekeeping and laundry services, 24-hour staffing and concierge, an emergency call system, and life enrichment and fitness programs.

“Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty – they merely move it from their faces
into their hearts.”

- Martin Buxbaum

Located just walking distance from Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, Vintage Burbank is close to Warner Bros and Universal Studios along with major shopping and city centers. “The most important message we strive to give to our seniors is that they are not giving up their independence,” says Lucy Woolsey, Senior Regional Sales & Training Manager. “We encourage them to live life to the fullest and emphasize an active resort lifestyle.” Confirming this is Kathy Fitzsimmons. Her father, Stan Kordell, was one of the first residents. “We couldn’t be more delighted,” says Kathy. “It’s like being in a 5 star hotel! They gave my dad a beautiful welcome basket. The staff is so caring and attentive! My father and I are thrilled!” Family members are encouraged to participate in the diverse activities and meals. Pets are also welcome. Another new resident, Marion Hendricks, jubilantly recants while sipping a glass of white zinfandel at the granite top bar, “It’s so beautiful here. Everyday I feel like I’m on vacation. On Mother’s Day they gave me an orchid corsage. I haven’t had one since high school. All the gals working here are so sweet.”

“It’s like being in a 5 star hotel! My father and I are thrilled!” Family members are encouraged to participate in the diverse activities and meals.
