Moorings Park Communities Celebrates 40 Years of Excellence & Growth

July 29, 2020

3-Campuses-photo-4What started out as a plan to provide local area seniors with superior healthcare and a comfortable place to spend their retirement years has grown from one tiny retirement community into a major corporation with multiple campuses. Today, Moorings Park Communities is one of the area’s largest employers, and the well-heeled boomers and seniors its three communities serve have become a key driver to Naples’ economic engine. 

Designed for Those Who Want the Very Best

“From our very inception in 1980, our unique communities were designed for those who demand excellence and who are searching for something special in retirement living. Our residents are affluent, educated people who want every advantage available when it comes to successful aging. They are looking for the Fountain of Youth,” said Tom Mann, Vice President of Moorings Park Communities. “That level of affluence allows us to do things that other communities simply can’t do.”

Since the earliest days in 1974 when 200 people gathered at Moorings Presbyterian Church to discuss creating a retirement community for its aging citizens, Moorings Park Communities has delivered on its brand promise of providing “Simply the Best” amenities and services to the people it serves. 

Setting the Benchmark in Luxury Retirement Living

From luxury residences spanning three campuses and ranging in size from charming one-bedroom apartments to gracious residences measuring more than 7,000 square feet, Moorings Park Communities has been the benchmark for luxury retirement living. From their on-site restaurants with innovative, creative cuisine to an endless list of amenities, which include resort-style pools and spas, men’s and women’s salons and spas, miles of rubberized walking and biking paths, multiple theatres and concerts halls and so much more. But what has really set the organization apart has been its holistic approach to wellness with a focus on proactive healthcare rather than reactive healthcare. 

Each of Moorings Park Communities’ Centers for Healthy Living house fitness centers, concierge physicians and medical clinics and outpatient rehab, to name just a few of the services. The myriad services are perhaps just one of the reasons why Moorings Park was recognized by International Council of Active Aging’s with its Beacon Award as the number one wellness-based community in North America. 

“Together, we have accomplished a great deal during our first 40 years,” said CEO and President Dan Lavender. “We look forward to achieving our many goals for the next 40 years as well.”
