FLINT TWP. — Homewood Village Genesee Valley, 4444 W. Court Street, will celebrate its new name with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours, from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, June 18, according to a press release.
Its new name — Brookdale Genesee Valley — will reflect its connection to the Brookdale senior living family and the large network of services it provides for senior adults. Other Brookdale communities across Michigan also are undergoing a name change.
“We are very excited about this change,” said Paula Ott, executive director of Homewood Village Genesee Valley. “Becoming a part of Brookdale shows that we are a part of something bigger and that we are engaged in a nationwide mission to provide seniors with the highest quality care, service and living accommodations.”
Brookdale, headquartered near Nashville, is the nation’s largest operator of senior living services. With approximately 1,150 communities in 46 states, Brookdale operates independent living, assisted living, and dementia-care communities and continuing care retirement centers.
“At a Brookdale community, you know the people who work there have a passion for helping seniors and finding them solutions to the needs in their lives,” Ott said.
“Our associates have always provided exemplary care for our residents and that will not change. We are proud of the care we have provided in Genesee Valley in the past and look forward to continuing to provide and elevating that level of care in the future as part of the Brookdale family.”
Unveiling a new sign is part of the ceremony next week. — R.S.
