Rose Senior Living officially broke ground October 14 on a new state-of-the-art senior living community on the Providence-Providence Park Hospital campus in Novi, Mich.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held at the construction site on the Providence-Providence Park Hospital campus. The program featured Warren Rose, President and CEO, Rose Senior Living; City of Novi Mayor Bob Gatts; and Peter Karadjoff, President of Providence-Providence Park Hospital, Novi. 

The 190,000-square-foot community, which will be managed by Ecumen, is now under construction at the northwest corner of Beck Road and 11 Mile Road in Novi, will offer 182 units — 69 independent living units, 75 assisted living, and 38 memory care. The community is expected to open during the summer of 2017.  Rose Senior Living has a strategic partnership with Ecumen, which currently operates Rose Senior Living communities in Memphis, Tenn., and Clinton Township, Mich. 

The Providence Park community will offer increased levels of personalized service as residents age-in-place, including a 24-hour care staff. The building’s amenities will include multiple dining venues, a café, theater, activity areas, a salon and extensive landscaped courtyards that offer a variety of outdoor activities.

The community will provide about 80 full-time and 20 part-time positions when it opens, as well as 150 jobs during construction.

“Our strategy for the senior housing market is based on building vibrant lifestyle communities with easy access to high-quality commerce, recreation, entertainment and especially health care,” said Warren Rose, CEO of Edward Rose & Sons. “Seniors increasingly are living longer, healthier and more active lives, and our communities are being built with that in mind.  We’re emphasizing convenience, walkability and options to age in place.”

Peter Karadjoff, president of Providence-Providence Park Hospital, Novi added, “We’re proud to have Rose build their exceptional senior living facility on our hospital campus. Their addition strengthens our overall goals of providing accessible quality healthcare right here in our community.”

Rose Senior Living Clinton Township Grand Opening!

Edward Rose & Sons Expands Its Senior Housing Portfolio With New Development in Clinton Township, Mich.

Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Scheduled Oct. 10, 2014

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (October 3, 2014) – Edward Rose & Sons, a privately held Michigan real estate development and management company, is continuing its expansion into the rapidly growing senior housing market sector with the opening of a new community in Clinton Township, Mich., northeast of Detroit.

Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township is adjacent to the Partridge Creek Mall and near Henry Ford Macomb Hospital, offers 176 units of senior living apartment homes – 74 independent senior living apartments, 64 assisted living apartments and 38 memory care suites. The housing mix allows residents to “age in place” by having access to more benefits and higher levels of service as their needs change.

Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township is 188,000 square feet and is connected to outdoor gardens and walking trails with easy access to the mall and other local amenities. A three-story building houses independent and assisted living, and memory care. The new community has numerous amenities including three dining venues, concierge serves, arboretum, media room, club lounge, fitness studio, movie theatre, chapel, and salon and spa.

“My grandfather started our company over 90 years ago to bring quality housing options to families”, said Warren Rose, CEO of Edward Rose & Sons. “We continue that tradition by creating homes for seniors – for those who want to live independently but don’t want the maintenance hassles, those who need a little help with day-to-day activities and those who need full-time memory care. All will share the wonderful amenities being build here. Our entire team is dedicated to bringing high quality senior living and services to this beautiful setting.”

“Throughout our history, we have been adaptive to changing market needs,” Rose said. “In 2011 we set a vision that put us on a new course to develop senior housing. Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township is a natural step for us – a premier senior housing development right in our backyard and surrounded by a vibrant community rich with amenities, activity, and character.”

Last year, Edward Rose & Sons opened its first senior living community in Memphis, Tenn., called Heritage at Irene Woods, and plans are underway for two additional communities – one in Avon, Ohio,  in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic, and one in Novi, Michigan, in partnership with St. John’s Providence. Both properties will break ground in late 2014. Ecumen, a nonprofit company headquartered in Minneapolis/St. Paul, is working with Rose Senior Living in the development and management of these communities.

“We will provide a warm and caring home for seniors in search of independent, assisted living or those living with memory loss,” said Shiela Pruzinsky, executive director of Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township. “Our mission is to create home for older adults. Ecumen’s leadership and employees happily deliver our mission every day by creating a friendly atmosphere and an extended family for our residents.”

Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township, which will create about 100 full and part-time jobs, opened August 15 to independent living residents and will open to assisted living and memory care residents in early October.

An official grand opening and ribbon cutting will be held in October. The public is invited to attend a community opening house on October 11, 2014, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and founded 93 years ago, Edward Rose & Sons also owns and operates non-age restricted apartments in Alabama, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, Nebraska, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin, including The Harbors, also located in Clinton Township.

Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township will be managed by Ecumen, which also manages Heritage at Irene Woods. Ecumen, founded more than 150 years ago, is one of the top 20 nonprofit providers of senior housing and aging services in the country and owns or manages 38 communities across the Upper Midwest. Ecumen is nationally recognized for its innovative efforts in changing aging and the stereotypes of growing older, and has been honored nine times as “Best Place to Work” by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.

Rose Senior Living – Clinton Township, located at 44003 Partridge Creek Blvd., is now taking reservations. For more information, go to the Rose Senior Living website, or call 855-856-3819 or email
