The Wellington Bay senior living community is the first rental independent living community built in the Village of Wellington in Palm Beach, Florida. It was created to offer a refined and upscale senior lifestyle experience unmatched in today’s rental senior market in South Florida, where much of the region’s senior housing supply is outdated and lacks the amenities seniors desire today. The first phase of Wellington Bay includes 159 Independent Living homes consisting of apartments, garden flats and villas.  The 65,000-square-foot clubhouse is the centerpiece of the community. Lisbet Assisted Living offers spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments that allow residents to receive support;  whether for a short-term recuperative period or longer term needed to maintain their independent lifestyle. Lisbet Health Center features 123 Assisted Living and Memory Care residences located in the Lisbet Health Center. For residents in need of support due to cognitive impairment, the on-site center provides specialized attention and security as well as reinforcing individuals’ strengths rather than their challenges.

The main lobby was designed with a subtle and elegant color palette, an array of furnishings and is anchored by modern chandeliers creating an entrance that is warm and inviting. Natural sunlight streams through the windows, illuminating the earthy tones of the furniture and finishes.

The community features sitting areas adjacent to the lobby for residents to read a book or sip coffee with their neighbors. Comfortable chairs, tall planters and light fixtures are perfectly complemented by the floor-to-ceiling windows that bathe the space in natural light.

Wellington Bay’s modern take on the library is complete with workspaces for residents who want to plug-and-play on their gadgets or read a good book in a comfortable yet stylish setting with cascading gold-and-glass lighting fixtures that are a focal point.

The community offers a beautifully appointed clubhouse where residents can relax in cozy chairs or engage in friendly conversation. With a range of activities, residents can find something that suits their interests and helps them feel at home, while offering a place of reflection.

The black, navy blue and gold color palette effortlessly complement the grey and white beamed ceiling that embodies this multi-purpose room perfect for community gatherings and special events. The four walls are wrapped by rectangle-shaped windows that provide breeze on a beautiful day and natural light as desired.

Both indoor and outdoor pools are available for water classes and aquatic exercise. The beach-entry pool creates easy accessibility for residents and their guests. Wellington Bay wellness instructors created a robust program of both land and water classes that are available to all residents, with coaching and personal training available upon request.

The beautifully designed, full-service bar offers members an opportunity to savor craft cocktails or watch their favorite sporting event on one of the multiple TV screens.

The on-site dining venues provide a variety of cuisines and settings to give community members an array of options. The upscale grill features fine dining comprised of multiple courses paired with premium wines in an elegant atmosphere. An homage to the area’s palms and beaches, dining rooms are decked in coastal inspired materials and themes that provide a delightful setting and an escape for residents to enjoy their freshly prepared meals served by a stellar staff.

Thoughtful spaces that welcome activity with mindful layouts. Marble, wood, stainless steel appliances and neutral and golden accents enhance the residences’ kitchen and dining creating an inviting and stylish space that anchors the home. Embracing an open layout, units feature a kitchen island perfect for entertaining or enjoying breakfast while taking in the natural views. The neutral color palette on the walls is enhanced by large vibrant pieces of art that infuse culture.

Outdoor areas provide a Zen atmosphere for seniors looking to take in fresh air or enjoy the expansive water views from the comfort of their home. Neutral colors adorn this space surrounded by lush greenery, providing a tranquil retreat for residents.
