AVIVA West Hartford is a place where history blends seamlessly with heartfelt care. Nestled in the heart of central West Hartford, this community has a unique story to tell—one of transformation, dedication and a commitment to providing the best possible experience for residents and their families.
What truly defines AVIVA West Hartford is its long-tenured staff. Some team members have worked there for 26 years. They see their work as a calling to make a positive difference in the lives of Aviva’s residents. This continuity creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, fostering a sense of home.
“The staff, many of whom have worked here for many years, are competent, friendly and helpful and fellow residents are warm and welcoming. AVIVA is home!” resident Susanne Flater says.
The leadership team also brings a wealth of industry experience, with more than 61 years of combined experience. Their hands-on approach and personal investment in the community's well-being sets the tone for the entire community.
The bond they share with residents goes beyond mere physical care. Whether it's a housekeeper taking the time for a personal conversation or staff members dancing with residents in the memory care neighborhood, it's heartwarming moments like these that make AVIVA special.
“The employees that care for my mom are amazing. They love her like we do and that is a great feeling knowing my mom is being cared for so well,” says David Kaletski.
With solutions for seniors at every stage of their lifestyle journeys, AVIVA combines engaging independent living, assisted living and memory care programs to create connections, community and friendship. Amenities include enrichment and wellness programming, chef-prepared meals and a full calendar of events.
“When Yael and I moved to AVIVA what I didn’t expect was how quickly I would feel at home. I now have good friends, both residents and staff. I cannot think of a better community to be a part of,” says resident Karen Trager
In September 2022, AVIVA West Hartford entered a new era under the ownership of Lloyd Jones, led by Chris Finlay. The transition marked a turning point in the community's history and brought about updated care models. One of these was the addition of the Assisted Plus program for individuals needing more oversight than traditional assisted living yet not ready for memory care. It's just one more example of AVIVA's commitment to accommodating the evolving needs of its residents.
Proud to be on the National Registry of Historic Places, AVIVA celebrates the unique history of their building while embracing the vibrancy of West Hartford. Local attractions such as Blueback Square, West Hartford Center, Bishop's Corner, theaters, museums and more are all minutes away. Its central location makes it ideal for seniors to live and engage in the local community.
AVIVA West Hartford is a testament to the power of dedicated staff, compassionate care and the commitment to make every resident's life meaningful.
