As many senior living operators know, planning and building a new community is a lot of work—and it can be even more challenging when that community is in a foreign country.

“It was not a decision that we took lightly,” Will told Senior Housing News. Continue reading “Belmont Village Plants New Roots with First International Location”

The statistics are shocking – even more so if you are a senior or have senior parents or relatives. The risk of falling increases with age and is greater for women.

Approximately 9,500 deaths in older Americans are associated with falls each year.
Sheri Easton-Garrett, MSN, RN, senior vice president of clinical services at Belmont Village’s corporate headquarters in Houston, was shocked before beginning research into interventions to prevent falls in Belmont Villages’ 25 senior communities across seven states and Mexico.
