Rockwood Center opens in Henrietta

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

This past Tuesday, SWBR’s Episcopal Senior Life Communities project opened in Henrietta. Rockwood Center, located on East Henrietta Road, gives more housing options for seniors in our area. The community offers one and two bedroom housing for adults over the age of 55. SWBR is proud to be a part of this project that is helping the seniors within our community.

Loren Ranaletta, President and CEO of Episcopal Senior Life, said, "Our idea is to provide affordable housing and bring services to the people that they want to keep their life stable, to keep them engaged socially, and to prevent them from falls and medical complications. This is our first big step into neighborhood housing and collaborative programming with the town and with the healthcare system. It's pretty special."

Residents at Rockwood Center have access to meals, social activities, housekeeping and transportation. It is funded by HUD, so there are income eligibility guidelines for residents. Click here to view a video of the project.
