Anthem Lakes Begins Reservations for All Levels of Senior Living Atlantic Beach’s first senior-focused rental community to open in February 2017

Anthem Lakes, a new concept in senior living, will revolutionize how seniors live in retirement and their golden years. Located on 14 beautiful acres with a nature preserve and lake, the community engages seniors with the outdoors while offering four distinct levels of care. The concept is unique to our city and the first community of its kind by a local partnership focused on providing innovative and modern design in senior living and care.

Anthem Lakes currently offers seniors pre-leasing opportunities for all levels of need. “Residents have been waiting for a rental community like Anthem Lakes,” said Joy Roberts, Anthem Lakes’ community operations specialist. “Our location offers the first rental community for seniors to stay near the beaches they enjoy and continue to live the life they have built and love.”

Pre-leasing allows the first residents to choose their apartment location and the view they enjoy. There is no real estate to buy and no large initiation or investment fee at Anthem Lakes – just one, easy monthly rental rate that provides the best value in innovative senior living.

In addition to the beautiful campus and new apartment homes, Anthem Lakes provides seniors the opportunity to continue to live with their beloved pets. A recent Harvard Health study revealed the many ways pets improve life and keep us healthy. “Many senior living communities have restrictions and objections to pets,” said David Kirkland, principal and advisor to Anthem Lakes. “At Anthem, we know that pets are part of the family and an integral part of enjoying life.” Anthem provides wonderful opportunities for walks with pets around its community along with a pet grooming salon and other pet-focused amenities.

About the Community

Anthem Lakes has been designed to feel like a park, with ponds and a lake and even a fishing dock. One visit and the difference is dramatically obvious. The community designed memory care in a separate building offering a difference and improving lives for all residents. Four care levels offer a responsive system for changing needs as residents age.

The four distinct levels of care are independent living, independent plus, assisted living and memory care in a separate and innovative new setting.

All levels of care and living will enjoy Anthem Lakes’ sunny Atlantic Beach location close to shops and dining, minutes from world-class medical facilities such as the Mayo Clinic and Baptist Medical Center Beaches. Anthem Lakes is also within a short walk to the US Navy Commissary. Outdoor amenities include lakes and lush landscaping, a putting green, customized senior-focused exercise equipment, nature trails, fishing, outdoor pet areas and ample parking. Anthem is also near the gorgeous coastal hammock and beach at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park.

On-site amenities include our bistro and full bar, our excellent “Country Club” dining room complete with our own dedicated career chef. Our open campus welcomes friends, family and loved ones. We offer technology classes, outings to Jacksonville’s wide array of entertainment and cultural events, social events on campus and our special iN2L support in memory care enhances activity and communication. Anthem Lakes makes senior living easy on our residents. We offer consolidated billing, linen service and laundry, housekeeping, senior-friendly LED TVs in every apartment, broadcast and cable programming, inspired dining choices, transportation and on-site resident and pet grooming services.

Our Philosophy – For Our Residents

The staff, owners and team at Anthem Lakes is committed to creating a unique living opportunity that is finally a better choice for seniors. Family, caring staff and comfort are our top priorities.

“We recognize that part of feeling at home is being surrounded by personal items and memories” said Roberts. “Every resident furnishes and decorates their own residence to make their new home personal and comfortable.”

It is our wish that residents choose to stay in their new apartments for a long time surrounded by new friends. Should medical needs change; we’ll do everything we can to bring needed services for as long as possible. “Our goal is for our residents to have the best living experience possible on their terms,” said Kirkland. “If any changes need to be made for care or safety sake, we will all make those decisions together.”

Anthem Lakes – Finally a Better Choice

Anthem Lakes is different – every detail has been well planned from the gorgeous 14-acre setting to our meal and care programs. But our residents are the heart of our community. In addition to all the details of everyday living, we offer strong community partnerships, social activities that engage intergenerational ties and our caring and well-trained staff values family and friendships most of all.
