COLUMBIA, Md.—Brightview Senior Living, a leader in senior living that builds, owns and operates 45 vibrant communities along the East Coast, announces the opening of its first community in Howard County, at Brightview Columbia. Located at 6670 Martin Road, Brightview Columbia serves seniors seeking independent living, assisted living and memory care residences. The brand-new, monthly-rental senior living apartments provide residents with everything they need for an engaged, fulfilling lifestyle.

“We are elated to open the doors of our first Brightview community in Howard County, and we look forward to getting to know our residents while introducing them to our engaging and award-winning programming,” said Kadine Mitchell, executive director of Brightview Columbia. “Our teams of experienced,  enthusiastic associates are what make our communities unique. The talented associates who have been selected to lead our first Howard County community are honored to serve the greater Columbia community. We are delighted to bring the same vibrant program to Howard County for which Brightview has been known in the Baltimore-Washington metro area for more than 20 years.”

Designed with safety and convenience in mind, Brightview Columbia offers a variety of apartments based on individual need: 91 independent living, 53 assisted living, and 26 apartments designed specifically for the needs of residents living with dementia. Studios and one- and two-bedroom spaces are available, each with premium amenities such as granite countertops, a balcony, spacious closets, and natural light.

Brightview provides all residents with restaurant-quality dining on site. Led by an executive chef, meals are table service, and rotating menus offer a variety of delicious and healthy options, including daily and seasonal specials. Other community amenities include: a pub with daily happy hours, billiards, shuffleboard, outdoor gardens, courtyards, bocce ball courts, library, computer room, card room, art studio, beauty salon, fitness studio, and juice bar.

Wellspring Village is a specially designed neighborhood within the community created for people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Wellspring Village provides an atmosphere where both residents and their families can enjoy amenities and programming designed to optimize engagement at all stages of the disease.

Brightview Columbia was designed with a nod to Athol Manor, a historic property within walking-distance to the community. In  dedication to the community, Brightview  restored the manor and revitalized the adjacent Manor Park. Athol Manor was gifted by Brightview  to the Community Foundation of Howard County.
