Sonata Senior Living Wins 2022 Retirement Living Awards

Congratulations to Sonata Senior Living for being named Best Assisted Living Community and Best Independent Living Community by Orlando Magazine in its 2022 Retirement Living Awards. As a premier provider of resort-style senior living, all of our Central Florida communities were recognized as among the best in the Orlando area, including Sonata Hunter’s Creek, Serenades at Longwood and Serenades at West Orange.

Retirement Should be Rewarding. And Occasionally, Awarding.

When Sonata Senior Living set out to become the premier choice for seniors in central Florida, winning awards wasn’t a motivation. Still, it’s gratifying to have our communities recognized as among the best in the Orlando area in the 2022 Retirement Living Awards from Orlando Magazine. Especially as this recognition helps us to focus on the purpose that got us here.

Locally owned and operated, Sonata was founded on the idea that each day should offer up more opportunities to live life to the fullest. At Sonata, you’re choosing more than simply a maintenance-free style of living. You’re choosing a retirement with more choices. More attention paid to your personal interests and aspirations. More security and safety features to remove worry from your life.  And more innovative options for resort-style retirement living.

At Sonata Senior Living, Our Roots Run Deep

At Sonata Senior Living, even as we continue to grow, our roots are firmly planted in Florida to stay closely connected to the communities we serve and nurture innovation in senior living. 

Our emphasis on innovation has led to our pioneering advancements in memory care at Serenades by Sonata. As with our independent and assisted living communities, personal choice is at the heart of our memory care communities. Purpose-built architectural features are integrated with our award-winning programming and personalized care to promote independence and dignity while assuring safety in the lives of those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. 

Pioneering advancements in memory care includes research-based concepts such as these:

  • Purpose-built design to encourage independence and freedom while assuring safety in the daily lives of those having Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
  • Integrating the personal preferences and abilities of residents into daily planning, encouraging greater personal choice in activities.
  • Architectural features, personal care and life enrichment, all integrated to provide greater freedom, dignity and sense of control.
  • Integrating research-based architectural planning into memory care with features proven to positively impact symptoms and behaviors of dementia, including small neighborhoods and open floor plans that help to promote personal interaction between caregivers and residents.
  • Innovative design features such as special lighting, color coding and cueing to ease wayfinding, build confidence and help reduce anxiety in finding the way home.
