Erickson Living Announces Planned Lunar Expansion

BALTIMORE, MARLAND – April 1, 2011 – Even though there is no air, no wind, and no water on the moon, that is not a major problem for Erickson Living in building the first lunar continuing care retirement community. In a “historic decision” today, the world’s largest developer and operator of continuing care retirement communities in the United States is expanding its portfolio of senior housing options to new heights…with the planned construction of Apollo Village. According to leading space entrepreneurs, Erickson Living’s decision has been made possible based on a new generation of powerful rocket boosters that will help make travel to the Moon possible in days. In addition, Erickson Living plans to offer free relocation and launch pad services for those who decide to live at Apollo Village in the next month. “The pioneer and industry leader in senior housing is now set to not only boost space travel, but also make their carefree retirement lifestyle what it truly is...Out of this World,” said a Space Tourism Society official. Construction is expected to start in September 2011.  (Apr 1, 2011 | post #1)

Paczki Day at Erickson Living

Tuesday, March 8th is Paczki (punch-key) Day – the feast of plenty before the Lenten (Christian tradition) fast begins. On this day (observed the day before Ash Wednesday in the United States) the traditional deep fried pastries (something like jelly doughnuts) are enjoyed throughout the world. In Poland, Paczki Day takes place the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, called Tlusty Czwartek (Fat Thursday). Long lines form in front of the bakeries in Polonia, and millions of Paczki are sold. On Tuesday, March 8, Erickson Living (5525 Research Park Drive, Catonsville, MD) staff will celebrate Paczki Day by sampling fruit and cream filled Paczki.  (Mar 4, 2011 | post #1)

Greenspring’s Renaissance Gardens Receives 5-Star Rating

SPRINGFIELD, VIRGINIA – February 25, 2011 – Greenspring’s Renaissance Gardens has been listed among the top 20 nursing homes in Virginia to receive a 5-Star rating from U.S. News & World Report. As Northern Virginia’s premier retirement community, Greenspring received the highest possible rating based on its exemplary performance in areas of health inspections, nurse staffing and medical care. U.S. News rankings rely on data from the Nursing Home Compare, a consumer website run by the federal government’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This web-based tool provides detailed information about every Medicare and Medicaid-certified nursing home in the country. CMS sets and enforces standards for all nursing homes enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid. “We are extremely proud that Greenspring’s extended care neighborhood has been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the Best Nursing Homes in America,” says Robin Gliboff, Executive Director of the continuing care retirement community. “Our inclusion in the publication’s ranking, along with the five-star rating from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is further validation of our effort and commitment to offer the best quality of care and it’s great to have those efforts recognized by an independent third-party.” Renaissance Gardens at Greenspring first opened in June 2001. Complete with all private rooms, Renaissance Gardens provides assisted living, short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing care as part of a new approach that maximizes independence in a health care setting. About Greenspring: Greenspring, the largest retirement community of its type in Northern Virginia, is one of 16 campuses managed by Erickson Living, a Catonsville, Maryland, company. Opened in November 1998, Greenspring is the first Erickson campus to be built in Virginia and is home to over 1,900 residents age 62-plus.
