St. Petersburg's Brentwood Senior Living Seeks Caring People To Fill Jobs

Providing services to senior citizens is one area of the economy that has withstood the test of the current recession. An example of that resilience is the opening later this month of Brentwood Senior Living Community in St. Petersburg.

The $25 million facility will have 200 apartments, resident care and recreation facilities, and has space for medical offices and retail outlets. Particular emphasis is given to accommodating the needs of residents sufferering from Alzheimer's Disease and dementia as well as their caregivers.

Staffing needs include hiring an executive chef, nurses, resident care coordinators, community relations coordinator and housekeeping and maintenance staff and supervisors.

Monique Spruill, Brentwood's executive director, says she and her staff want to provide something special. "This is so much more than a place to live. We are building a community with amazing resources and lifestyle options, from our resident rooms to amenities such as a wellness center, café, billiards parlor, spa with hydro tub, library, ice cream parlor and a private dining room. This is truly a leader in senior care."

Many of Brentwood's resources are available to non-residents and their caregivers. There is a day program that provides social opportunities and overnight accommodations for seniors with sleep disturbances, confusion, Alzheimer's or wandering habits. Transportation to and from the program is available for local seniors within 10 miles of Brentwood.

Local companies are involved in the project from the ground up. Swanholm Central, LLC is the developer and Karns Enterprises is the builder. Brentwood is managed by Senior Management Advisors, a Clearwater-based operator of full service independent living, assisted living and Alzheimer's care residential communities in Florida and Georgia.
