Builder, Owner and Operator since 1997

When Patricia Will founded Belmont in 1997, she did so out of love of family. A medical real estate developer, she was seeking a better place for her mother-in-law, who was experiencing cognitive decline. Unable to find a community that combined the highest levels of hospitality and care, Will decided to create one herself.

Collaborating with California hospitals and universities

Through the years, Will has understood the value of partnerships in bringing her unique vision to life. In 2017, she opened Belmont Village Albany in affiliation with UC Berkeley to develop a rich curriculum of programs and opportunities for interactions between the campus and the community. It continues a long tradition of university-affiliated communities — our very first was right here in California. The thought, research, and design that go into our development has changed the paradigm of senior living, offering an experience based on reward, not denial.

UC Berkeley

Continuity of Quality Guaranteed

Unlike other senior living communities that are managed by third party operators, Belmont Village builds, owns, and operates all of our communities. This means residents can rest assured that they will receive a consistent level of experience in programming, service, amenities, and dining for the long term.

Tapping World-Class Expertise to Redefine Senior Living

Accessing teams of specialists from universities, healthcare institutions, and professional organizations is the developmental model for every Belmont Village community. We not only collaborate with these institutions, we sponsor research. Currently, Will serves as a board member for the USC Davis School of Gerontology and the UCLA Longevity Center, where she not only sees the benefits of cutting-edge aging research but uses it to guide our services and programs.

Unparalleled clinical support for ongoing health and wellness

Tailored to each resident’s need, our exceptional holistic health and wellness program is supported on-site by licensed nurses and a trained staff 24/7. It includes nutritional and clinical support, physical and mental fitness, learning, social interaction, medication management, physical therapy and rehabilitation.

We also work closely with the UC San Diego School of Medicine, Stein Institute for Research on Aging, and Center for Healthy Aging for programming insights. Recently, residents at two of our communities in California even participated in a groundbreaking study on resilience and stress reduction through innovative intervention.

Evidence-based memory care programming

For residents experiencing mild to moderate cognitive decline, our award-winning memory care program Circle of Friends® takes a comprehensive approach that includes exercise, education, nutrition, and social engagement.

Demonstrably effective at mitigating the effects of memory loss, this program was developed through partnerships with neurologic researchers and clinicians at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, the International Alzheimer’s Association, and other respected healthcare institutions and organizations.

Luxury dining and hospitality

Food is one of life’s great pleasures. To elevate this experience for our residents, the team at Belmont Village created our dining program with hospitality, food service, ergonomics, and engineering experts at the University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management.

Everything from the quality and nutritional value of the food, to the plating, to the elegant architecture and design of our dining areas, to the room temperature was scrutinized and fine-tuned. Most importantly, we listened to our residents, to deliver a food and service experience seniors appreciate.

Designed to meet the needs of every resident

Delicious food, luxurious amenities, engaging social activities, stimulating memory-care programming, and comprehensive clinical and therapeutic support. Here, everything comes together to help residents live their best lives, even if their lives change further down the road. Experiences are tailored to meet the personal needs of all residents, including couples requiring different levels of care who wish to continue living together.


“Thank you, thank you, thank you for keeping us safe, fed, involved, and interactive in the community. Who knew COVID-19 would happen? But you have all risen to the occasion, and are helping us cope in many ways. Life has gone on as usual, with many changes, but it is still a great place to be.”
