At Whitney Center, we’ve found the perfect combination of graceful aging that blends meaningful lifestyles with individualized endeavors. Our Life Care community centers around cultural pursuits and purposeful contributions to the world around us. We make this kind of senior living possible by giving seniors confidence through consistency and the availability of lifelong care.
“We believe that in order to create a meaningful retirement, seniors need the freedom to pursue the interests that matter most to them,” says Michael Rambarose, President and CEO of Whitney Center, located in Hamden, CT. “At Whitney Center, we make it easy for residents to experience fulfillment in their lifestyles. We present endless opportunities for seniors to engage in the arts, academia and recreation. We partner with fantastic organizations throughout the Greater New Haven community to provide avenues for seniors to get involved and give back. Our residents can dive into the activities that make them feel alive with confidence in the support we provide with our community resources.”
Never Stop Growing Through Cultural Engagement
Whitney Center defines graceful aging as the desire to continue pursuing the things you love. Whether that’s visual arts, theater, history, travel, science, health, family connections or anything else, age shouldn’t be a reason to stop growing in the direction of your individual source of light.
Our community thrives on connections to the arts, humanities and cross-cultural education. On campus, our Cultural Arts Center hosts a full schedule of special performances and lectures, and it is also home to The Gallery, which features artwork from professionals and our own residents. Off campus, the New Haven area is full of opportunities for those who want to keep growing. Home to Yale University and dozens of music and theater organizations, museums, and more, there’s more than enough to do throughout every season.
Stay Connected to the Community
One of our core values at Whitney Center is to build relationships throughout the Hamden and Greater New Haven area. Our residents, families and staff all have close connections with a number of local organizations, companies and events that make for a richer, fuller community life.
We take an active role in developing relationships and support local organizations and events. To us, fulfilling the responsibility we have to our greater community is a source of purpose and creates more opportunities for meaningful connections to those around us. Many of our residents volunteer with groups dedicated to the arts, health issues for seniors, and many others. A few partnerships include the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, the Alzheimer’s Association®, Neighborhood Music School, Habitat for Humanity®, and New Haven Symphony Orchestra.
Our residents consistently volunteer their time and talents to humanitarian projects throughout the area. We believe that giving back to others and contributing, even in small ways, to one’s community increases happiness and fulfillment. This idea is at the core of many of our efforts at Whitney Center.
Move Forward With Confidence
Pursuing life interests, goals and community efforts wouldn’t be possible without security in one’s well-being.
