Belmont Village American Heros

Veteran Proud To Have Served His Country, Owned Salon

What began as an article about Buffalo Grove resident Rocco Marchetta’s wartime experience transitioned into another story. Marilyn Emigh, one of his four daughters, had quite a different story to tell, one of pride and love for a father who taught his children to work hard and be responsible.

Rather than redirect the interview, it was best to simply let her tell her father’s story. About a soldier that survives his injuries during World War II to build a business in Park Ridge that served clients for years. Continue reading “Veteran Proud To Have Served His Country, Owned Salon”


Meeting some seniors’ desire for urban living presents challenges, benefits

Senior living companies seeking to offer housing in urban areas can face many obstacles during the site location and building processes, but a payoff comes in addressing the needs of an unserved or underserved market.

And the market for senior living in urban areas appears to be growing.

“People who’ve lived all their lives in suburban environments may be attracted to the suburbs or the city, but the ones who’ve been in the city definitely want to stay there,” Belmont Village Senior Living founder and CEO Patricia Will told McKnight’s Senior Living.

Building on 100% Occupancy for Consistent Senior Housing Success

Though the accomplishment of achieving an occupancy rate of 95% or higher may have lost its luster for some industry analysts, the distinction still carries weight for many senior housing providers, and has become an integral component for many communities in their marketing and sales strategies.

This is certainly true at Houston-based Belmont Village Senior Living, according to Carlene Motto, executive vice president and chief marketing officer at Belmont Village. Its Westwood community in Los Angeles has maintained 100% occupancy for 37 consecutive months.

“It creates a sense of urgency with consumers when they [discover] that you have limited availability. That builds a natural sense of urgency within itself,” Motto told Senior Housing News. “I feel very proud of the communities that have achieved 100% occupancy, especially today when there is so much new supply and entry within the marketplace, and also so many options that exist.” Continue reading “Building on 100% Occupancy for Consistent Senior Housing Success”


Belmont Village “tops out” at Lakeway Location

 Belmont Village Senior Living, with its structure now erected at 107 Bella Montagna Circle in Lakeway, joins four other senior living facilities existing in Lakeway, not including the Tuscan Village age-restricted housing. Belmont Village will be open for residents sometime in the summer of 2018, after construction is completed on the exterior, the roof and the interior of the building, Belmont Village representatives said.

“One of the things we really like about Lakeway is that retirees have felt they wanted to be able to stay there,” Belmont Village Chief Investment Officer Margaret Scott said. “They want to stay close to their families and community … in dealing with the city of Lakeway, they have a very thoughtful and measured approach to land use.”
