The Kensington, a new enhanced assisted living and memory care residence in downtown White Plains, has announced that it is more than 50 percent occupied after four months.

“We are thrilled with the success we’ve achieved since our grand opening in September,” said The Kensington Executive Director Celina B. Watson, R.N., B.S.N.

Walson said one of the main reasons for The Kensington’s success is that, as an enhanced assisted living residence, it can offer licensed nursing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week, plus a full spectrum of clinical support including skilled care. As a result, residents do not need to relocate to another facility if their assisted living care needs change.“At The Kensington you can truly age in place,” she said.

Another important feature of The Kensington is its Memory Care program, which provides care in two specially designed neighborhoods which are ideal for those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. The Connections Neighborhood is for those with early to mid-stage memory loss, while the Haven Neighborhood is designed for those with mid- to late-stage loss and is secured to enhance safety.

Located at 100 Maple Ave., just one block from White Plains Hospital, The Kensington features 87 attractively designed suites with a wealth of amenities and services in an elegant and comfortable setting. Residents at The Kensington enjoy fine dining with meals attended by wait staff with open seating times, table linens, china and crystal. The Kensington offers a variety of suite styles, with options for private or companion living.
